Invite Non-UTRGV Participants to a Skype for Business Meeting

Non-UTRGV Skype for Business meeting participants do not need to install Skype for Business on their computer to join a meeting. When first joining a Skype meeting, participants will be prompted to install a Skype plug-in that allows participants to share:
