  • Testing out the whiteboard feature, it gives both users the opportunity to add a great deal of content to a shared environment, and use other tools to collaborate with each other. Granted, though it is better to use a touch-screen device, nevertheless using the mouse or other input device will suffice. In this case, it displays adding text to the screen.

  • Using the 'laser pointer', one can point out which is the most significant or most pertinent. This is more of an example than anything else, but it does show some of the collaborative functions available to Lync users. At any time, one can join the meeting from another Lync client, or the Silverlight enabled Lync Web App from the web.
