don’t worry it still works the same just a different icon. It is unified communications platform that is available to students, faculty and staff, which integrates seamlessly with email, calendar and the ECU address book* to allow instant text messages, video conferences, online presentations and even group conferencing. Skype/Lync just a different icon allows true collaborative desktop sharing among attendees for quick project edits and live brainstorming. Try it out, message me!
One of the most-requested features is the ability to invite non-ECU participants to a meeting or presentation.

So how can you control the computer without your mouse? Well firstly, the easiest thing to do is use the ALT key and the ATL + TAB key combo. ALT + TAB lets you switch between programs and just pressing the ALT key on your keyboard focuses onto the menu options, such as File, Edit, etc.
The right-click keyboard shortcut is to hold down SHIFT and then press F10. That’s one of my favorite keyboard shortcuts because it comes in VERY handy and sometimes it’s actually easier to use the keyboard than the mouse.
There are some other handy Windows keyboard shortcuts that you should know in case you are stuck in a bad situation:
CTRL+ESC: Opens the Start menu (then use ARROW keys to select an item)
ALT+DOWN ARROW: Opens a drop-down list box
ALT+F4: Closes the current program window
ALT+ENTER: Open the properties for the selected object
So why not make a quick video using MDR to explain?
