Collaboration

Zoom  Zoom is now available to all Duke University and Duke Health campus-based faculty, staff, and students as a supplement and additional tool for virtual conferencing. In addition to meetings, Zoom can be used to deliver lectures, hold class discussions, share screens to show slides, and text chat with trainees.

Cisco WebEx Duke Health workforce members may use the Cisco WebEx conferencing application. All Duke Health and Duke University faculty, staff, and   students may request a WebEx account on the WebEx website to host and run meetings via a computer or mobile device.

 

Microsoft Teams  Microsoft Teams is a team collaboration application that is fully integrated with Microsoft Office 365 and helps your teams work more quickly and efficiently. Microsoft Teams is automatically available to all Duke Office 365 email and calendar via a computer or mobile device. This application works best if only used for internal Duke purposes and should not be used for instant messaging or teleconferencing with users who are not Duke workforce members.

 

Box  Box is a file sharing and storage service, which provides easy user access and secure collaboration with Duke and non-Duke users from any device. Consider moving some frequently used files to Box instead of using the VPN to access files stored on the Duke network.
