    Skype is a great too

    Skype is a great tool for communication. It allwos people to converse face-to-face without having to be in the same place. It is a huge advance from email and phone because it allwos for the role of non-verbal communication to still take place in the conversation which is essential for a more personal conversation. Skype is great for the field of business, education, and personal use. I personally have used Skype here at Purdue to talk to my family who is back at home. The tool works wonderfully. In the world of Education, Skype provides the ability for students to communicate with their teacher. The student may have missed class, or may just need a question answered. With Skype there is less room for confusion/miscommunication. This is very important when it comes to learning. Skype not only allwos communication between teacher and student, but between student and student as well. This is very helpful because if students need to converse with one another but aren't able to get together or discuss the material efficiently enough over the phone, they can simply Skype each other.
