Two short videos on using Skype for MAGIRT Committee Meetings

  • 1.  Two short videos on using Skype for MAGIRT Committee Meetings

    Posted Feb 28, 2013 08:00 AM

    I made two short (and very low-budget) videos that show on-screen how to create and use Skype for MAGIRT committee meetings.  You do not need a video camera to use Skype, and in fact MAGIRT meetings never use video.  We do highly recommend a headset though.

    On the video window, don't overlook the little icon that allows you to expand the screen to your entire monitor - otherwise it is too small to see well.
