Classroom Uses

  • Skypecasts as “large, hosted calls on Skype.” Sound pretty simple. Basically you can create or join a large online conference call with UP TO 100 people. Skypecasts are scheduled to begin and end at a certain time and usually have a certain topic of discussion.
  • Use with a webcam for video conferencing
  • Skype can also be used to connect individual students with real people in the world so they can have conversations about school work being done and the work being done in the real world.
