What is Yammer?

Yammer is a social networking tool which can be used by HWU students and staff to create networks and communities.  It is available as part of Office 365.

It can be used by any group e.g. research, study, project groups, schools, professional services, teams etc for knowledge sharing.

Yammer can provide social and collaboration space for groups that work in different locations.
