Web Secret #5 - Skype
Skype is a FREE program that allows you to make calls on your computer for FREE to anyone, anywhere in the world.
To make this miracle happen:
Purchase a headseat with a microphone. You can get one for as little as $19.00. I opted for a little more quality (and comfort) and sprang for a Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB for $39.99.
Then, go to the Skype website and download the program.
Follow the simple instructions and you are connected!
Bonus Hint: The amazing thing about Skype is that it can be used for group chats. My colleage, Dr. Mike Klaybor, has used Skype to supervise and teach mental health colleagues working in a remote location in Russia!
