Based on a cloud commuting system, Lync Online can connect members of a team with one another in a reliable and engaging way. It is part of the umbrella system called Office 365, which also houses SharePoint online, Exchange email, and Microsoft Office Online products.

Web conferencing is another possibility for group members who enjoy annotation, note taking, and other convenient in-meeting tools.
