Considerations for using Skype:

  • You will need to use your own Skype account since there is not a departmental account for general usage.
  • Please add the person you will be conferencing with to your Skype contacts list ahead of time.
  • Request that the guest use a wired connection, if possible, since wifi can introduce unexpected network hiccups.
