Skype™ is an application that allows you to make voice and video calls, make online conference calls, send text messages, share files, and share your computer screen over the Internet — all at no cost. It’s a great tool for working on projects with colleagues or classmates and for faculty holding virtual office hours. All you need is a broadband internet connection, a Skype™ account, the free Skype™ application, a microphone, and a webcam. More advanced options are available at a competitive cost, including group video calls, telephone calls (to land lines or mobile phones), and SMS (text messaging to mobile devices).

Visit the Skype website to download the application and for support information.  Contact one of our Instructional Designers with any questions.
