    • Skype does not need to be bought but can easily be installed on www.skype.com and the minimum requirements are:
    • PC running Windows 2000, XP or Vista. (Windows 2000 users require DirectX 9.0 for video calls).
    • Internet connection – broadband is best (GPRS is not supported for voice calls).
    • Speakers and microphone – built-in or separate.
    • For voice and video calls we recommend a computer with at least a 1GHz processor, 256 MB RAM and of course a webcam.
    • For High Quality Video calls you will need a high quality video webcam and software, a dual-core processor computer and a fast broadband connection (384 kbps).

    • Not every class has an accessible computer.
    • Not very practical because you have to be online so that you can be spoken to.
    • Also unpractical because you must add everyone you want to talk to.
    • Must install at home if you want to use at home.
    • Cannot use microphones and webcams in all classes.
  • 16.
    • I personally think that it is not practical to use Skype in school because of many reasons such as:
    • Both people must be online in order to communicate.
    • You must add everyone you want to talk to (a lot of people).
    • An alternative communicative program is Ning which is much more practical.
