Why Skype?

Skype is the most widely-used video conferencing software in the world, so we built it into the site to make it easier for everyone. Teachers can also add an appear.in "learning material" to their classes and sessions, which will allow them to chat using video and audio for free without any software for up to 8 people. You can also use some other video conferencing software for live sessions such as Zoom, Line, Google Hangouts, etc. if you like.  Download Skype
