Telephone conference calls and video conferences
LiU offers a telephone conference system using Skype, which makes it very easy to hold telephone conferences.
The only things that the participants need to know are the telephone number to call and a conference ID.
The system is very flexible. It is possible to join the conference from a telephone, and it is also possible to join using a computer. In this case, it is possible to share and view the computer desktop, to send chat messages, use video, etc.
Booking a telephone conference
Through the telephonist
Order a conference call in advance, preferably at least one day in advance, by sending email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You will then receive a message with the telephone number that the participants are to call, together with a conference ID. Send this to all participants.
- The cost of the telephone call is borne by each individual participant, since they have called the number of the telephone conference. LiU telephones in Sweden are not charged anything for such a call.
Booking a telephone conference yourself
It is also possible to and book and administer a telephone conference in Outlook, without going through a telephonist. See instruction provided by Microsoft here (both Windows and Mac), or follow the instructions below.
