Yammer Reminder and Training


A Quick Reminder…Yammer is coming October 12th

On October 12th, we will be officially launching the CofC Yammer Network!

What is Yammer?

Yammer is the College of Charleston’s enterprise social network, a private and secure online environment that makes real-time communication, collaboration, and sharing among faculty and staff easier and more efficient than ever before.  Yammer will consolidate the disparate methods used to communicate across the college into a centralized “one stop” service for college communication, information sharing, and collaboration.  You will be able to use Yammer to subscribe to content based on your interests and responsibilities, send messages directly to groups or individuals, and create public or private groups for departments, project teams or special interests.

Yammer will serve as a central point of communication and collaboration for the college replacing several of the current disparate outdated communication methods.  With the implementation of Yammer, some of the current outdated communication methods will be replaced.  This will ensure that communication across the college is unified.  The following will be decommissioned when Yammer “Goes Live” on October 12, 2015.

  • Faculty Listserv
  • Faculty & Staff Listserv
  • Staff Listserv
  • College of Charleston Web Forums

One of the big advantages of Yammer is that it combines the functionality of web forums with listservs so that members can receive and post messages via a web interface, mobile client, or simply by email.
