Studying for finals via video call

Did you know that almost 40% of internet users aged twelve through seventeen now use video chat services such as Skype? That’s what the findings of a new study by the Pew Research Center uncovered. With K-12 schools across the country winding down and students gearing up for final exams, we can only imagine how many teenagers are using Skype video calling to not only connect with friends, but also with classmates.

Whether it’s a multiple choice math exam, Spanish-speaking verbal exam or a group science project, there are several ways students can use Skype to help you ace their tests just in time for summer break:

  • Working on a group Powerpoint project? Try Skype group screen sharing, part of Skype Premium, and screen share the presentation with up to nine of your fellow students to collaborate in real time and ensure the best looking presentation possible!
  • Having a hard time figuring out that tough math equation? Use Skype video calling to call the math guru in your class and see face-to-face how they solve the problem.
  • Discussing the final group project topic? Gather up to nine other classmates onto a Skype Group Video Call and discuss topic ideas together in real-time.
  • Want another set of eyes to look over your English term paper? With free Skype file sending, send documents of any size to a parent, friend or tutor to help catch any of those hard-to-find mistakes.
  • Need to practice speaking another language before the verbal exam? Skype-to-Skype voice calling is the perfect way to call a classmate and practice your language skills with no time constraints and for free!
