As I mention Skype in most about every post about online teaching, I just wanted to mention that the new Skype Version 4.0 has been released for Windows.
What are the new features? Most important for me, from the online teacher view, are:
- Best-ever sound
Calls are crystal clear and even more reliable. Plus our ‘smart help’ picks up any sound issues and helps you fix them during a call.
- Bigger video
Feel like you’re talking face-to-face with great sound and picture. Fill your screen with the faces you love.
Other features are a new look, of course, the possibility to jugglebetween conversations and I think some others they did not mention yet.
I am looking forward to try it out with my students and I will write a review about my experiences with the brand new Skype, of course.
