Hi All,

I work in a fairly big college and we are looking at installing Lync 2010 for presence, IM and technicial support (screen sharing etc...). I would like to deploy it across the college and enable all users to have access to it and be able to use it's features especially when teaching, and using technicial support however I want to control student access. I want students to have IM and video conferencing functionality but only with staff, I do not want them to be able to IM each other as they would never do any work! Is there anyway we can restrict students from being able to IM and VC each other but allow them to be able to use these features with staff?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Natalie

I don't believe this is possible as even with ethical walls built you'd still have to put the students in the same location as the teachers to communicate, thus the students would be able to contact each other as well.

You could disable the IM portion for all students and then deploy a web-based chat function similar to what companies use for online support, and then setup Response Groups for the various sets of teachers who may be online to response to questions from the students.
