What is Skype?

Skype is a phone/internet messaging service that allows users to make computer-to-computer phone calls to any other Skype user in the world completely free using your internet connection. With Skype, you can:

  • Make voice and video calls to other Skype users
  • Conference calls with three or more people
  • Instant messaging, file transfer and screen sharing
  • Make phone calls to non-Skype users for a nominal fee

IVCC offers students the ability to discuss classes/programs offered at IVCC with a counselor/advisor at the main campus utilizing Skype. Students can use the voice call feature or the video call feature of Skype when contacting a counselor.

To use Skype, you need to have the following:

  • A PC or Mac computer
  • An Internet connection (broadband is best)
  • A webcam to make video calls(not necessary for voice call only)
  • Skype software available as a free download.
