Skype module

Jump to: navigation, search

The Skype Module allows interaction between all teachers and students in a course using Skype.

This module was created by Amr Hourani with community input guiding its development.


  • Two types
    • Teacher to teacher
    • Teacher/student to student
  • Several options
    • Video calling,
    • Send files,
    • Chat,
    • Send SMS (Short Message Service or phone text messages)


Users must have a Skype ID in their profile, and must have at least Skype version 2.0.79 installed and configured correctly for this activity module to recognize them. The module functions best when place as an activity inside a course because the module uses role based assignments of student and teacher. Unless you have front page student/teacher roles assigned the moodle skype mod can not 'see' the users. --E. L. Cooper 17:50, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
