Campus creates Skype guidelines page

If you're interested in using Skype on the campus network, a new Web page of guidelines can help.

The page, posted by Information and Educational Technology, does not constitute a campus endorsement of Skype, which is owned by eBay. But information on the page should help you use the service on the campus network in the most secure way possible.

Skype software lets users place telephone calls over the Internet to other Skype users at no charge. But calls placed to land lines and mobile phones carry a fee; also, it cannot be used to dial 911 in an emergency. Learn more about the service at its Web site.
