Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) - Skype

Skype. This one of several Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) software programs that enables high quality audio computer-to-computer over the Internet.

  • Students may conference using Skype. One interesting feature is Skype-out that enables long distance calls to traditional phone numbers in many countries at a rate of less than three cents a minute.
  • Using utilities such as powergramo, one may record conversations such as interviews over Skype for playback in classes.
    -->Just open powergramo and Skype simultaneously. Make a call in Skype and powergramo automatically records the call!
  • With the Firefox Skype extension, phone numbers on Web sites turn into buttons which you can click to call from Skype.
