Skype Opens Up Web Version To Everyone

| 1 Comment


Skype has now opened-up its web-based version to everyone.

In order to be able to use it for voice or video calling, however, you still have to download a plugin. Much to my surprise, however, my school computer, which has a zillion restrictions on what can and cannot be downloaded, let me do it.

This can come in quite handy now for teachers whose districts restrict software downloads, and could make it easier for class conversations with authors, other classes, etc.

You can read more about it at this Tech Crunch post.

I’m adding this info to The Best Online Tools For Real-Time Collaboration.
