Tips
  • Invite a friend, or 5 or 25 to tea -- to sit with you at your computer during our session. Unplug the your headset speakers so everybody in the room can hear. Pass the headset microphone to anybody in your group who wants to respond. If you really want to go wild, hook the speaker jack to a PA system and... well... you get the idea... an audio connection with an unlimited number of participants. Can Oprah-like Transition presenters be far off....

Haven't been home to do this round on skype- not enough lead time to schedule- giving & going to workshops keeping me out of the house

terminology is confusing to me-Skype phone means what?
I've been only using the skype to skype names, to one other person; when the other person has a built in webcam we see each other, never did it with a group, does group conference have to be done with phones? Is chat only done with texting?

May try tomorrow by 4pm if I get home in time-
Cheers/

I really am rebelling from using technology I don't understand- brain is too stretched right now.
Nobody is happy doing things they can't do. That's why the tutorials. And Les is great at teaching. He is ever so patient!!
Skype phone means what? -- Skype turns your computer into a phone.

does group conference have to be done with phones? -- Skype creates audio conversations without the use of landlines or cell phones.

Is chat only done with texting? -- Chats are text. People talk on the call and write notes into Chat.
Thanks for any information that Skype has always been a mystery to me I hope to start using it properly
