Using Skype as a good way to communicate.

Even though i haven´t used it very much I am impressed with the functionality in Skype. This is a Voip application and part of the new communication over Internet. Its just like talking in a telephone since the algoritms that compress the sound so effectivly you can speak at the same time and even have conference online with 5 people.

I think this application could effectively be used also in education. This is a possible way to develop language on a distance or a way to explain complex matters in math.

You are also able to write at the same time. Skype could be a good addition in blended or in elearning.
