I am delivering my online trainings through Microsoft Skype for Business. It is different from normal Skype. I am also using Teamviewer for online training.

Skype is great for home and work and lets you connect with millions of people to grow your business. If you want to use Skype at work, you have two options – either use the same Skype that you use at home or use Skype Meetings. Let's take a look at the differences.


The Skype that you use at home is great for smaller businesses of up to 20 employees. It is free to use, unless you want to buy credit to make calls to landlines and mobiles. Learn more about meetings with Skype.

Skype Meetings

With Skype Meetings, you'll get a personal URL you can use to invite participants to join your meeting. Make the most of your meeting time by sharing screens, using the laser pointer, or a collaborative whiteboard. Meeting organizers also have access to professional controls such as the ability to mute or unmute participants. Anyone in the U.S. with a business email address whose organization doesn't already have an Office 365 business subscription that includes Skype for Business can sign up for Skype Meetings. As soon as you sign up you can start meeting with up to 10 people for the first 60 days, and up to 3 people after that. Learn more or get started with Skype Meetings.

Need even more conferencing features (Skype for Business)?

Skype for Business lets you add up to 250 people to online meetings, gives you enterprise-grade security, allows you to manage employee accounts, and is integrated into your Office apps.
