LIVECASTING is similar to podcasting, except that individuals can broadcast their show live. These livecasting sessions can be audio only or full video. Listeners/viewers of the live show can chat with each other and the host. The show can easily be embedded in a blog to create an show archive. This can be considered the next evolution of podcasting and YouTube.

What is VoIP?

Voice over Internet Protocol, more commonly referred to as VoIP, is a method of taking analog audio signals, like the kind you hear when you talk on the telephone, and turning them into digital data. This digital data can be transmitted over the internet. Computer-based VoIP service is the most common among VoIP users. In many cases, this type of VoIP service can be used for free. This is because software-based VoIP normally involves PC-to-PC communication over the Internet.


Why is VoIP Important?

VoIP can turn a standard internet connection into a way to place free phone calls. The practical benefit of this is that by using the internet to make voice calls, you are bypassing the telephone company and its charges. VoIP is a revolutionary emerging technology that is causing people in business, inductry and education to rethink the use of traditional phone systems and communication methods.


Educational Benefits of VoIP

"Internet connectivity in educational settings provides opportunities for interactive exchange and collaboration between students living on other sides of town or the other side of the planet. These synchronous, real-time discussions using free software like “Skype” can tangibly expand the walls of the traditional classroom and engage students to write, share, and communicate with an authentic audience inaccessible just a few years ago. Educators interested in helping motivate students to develop both traditional as well as twenty-first century literacy skills in the classroom can and should use audio conferencing technologies like Skype to literally plug their students into collaborative exchanges with global partners on a variety of projects."  - Wesley Fryer from Tools for the TEKS
