Yipes, Skype

We are fans of Skype here at Butler Online. You might 'kinda' know about it as a way to make free phone calls anywhere, through your computers, as long as you have audio enabled (microphone). If you have a webcam you can use that, too. (Although personally I hate the way the monitor reflects off my glasses)

It has some amazing, and easy to use features for a free app.

What we have found extra useful though, is the way you can share your desktop. Yup, it makes a great option for explaining issues whether there are technical ones in ANGEL or content based ones within any application you might have on your computer (Word, Excel, etc)
You can do conference calls, but the desktop sharing works only between two computers, I think.

If you want to know more, or if you want to share your own favorite way to use Skype, give us a shout.
