Online Skype sessions as an alternative to classroom based learning 

 

 


What is Skype

Skype provides high quality voice calling.  Skype have created their own low bandwidth, high definition, voice codec that enables users to conduct voice calls in high definition.

However, Skype is not just about video calling. For the vast majority of the session, Barry provides visual information via screen sharing, such as presentation slides, diagrams and other teaching resources to help better explain a concept and maximise your learning.

 

As part of blended learning

We do not offer stand alone Skype session, our Skype sessions are a fantastic tool which can add to your blended learning experience. One or two hour-long, focused sessions can be arranged to fit in around your busy schedule in addition to or instead of  your face to face tutorials  alongside your e learning.

What People Are Saying

‘Skype is an excellent way to allow for real time collaboration on lesson content.’

 

Why Skype as a tool?

We use Skype as it is a very flexible tool. It is a software application which means that Skype can be accessed on just about any ‘screen” that has an internet connection; this includes your P.C, laptop, iPad and mobile phone. Another benefit is that Skype is free to download.

Skype brings the classroom to you, wherever you are in the world. It is as if you’re in the room with Barry as he is able to provide you with required one-to-one or small group tuition.
