Colonial Connect

Jabber, a Colonial Connect service from the Division of IT, brings phone capabilities to your computer through the integration of chat, voice, video and desktop share in one tool. Once installed, you can select any of these features from the Jabber window. Jabber allows you to make and receive calls, check voicemail, receive voicemail messages in your email inbox, group chat with others and easily see who is online, integrate your calendar and share video and desktop with someone else all from your computer. Jabber also supports WebEx integration, and will automatically send invites to those within a Jabber group chat if WebEx is needed.
