Now you can make free, great quality calls from your computer. You can use your internet connection and turn your computer into an internet phone and make free Skype-to-Skype calls. You and your friend will need to have a headset (or use your computer’s built-in microphone and speakers) to talk to each other. Webcams allow you to use video as you talk.

Slide 8: Where Can I Get Engaging Content for My Wiki or Blog? Slide 9: Tricks Embedding Media Most wikis and blogs, such as Wikispaces, support adding embedded pictures, video, applications and other media through the use of the [[media]] tag. Using this tool, you can embed video clips, sounds and music, chat clients, and any other content designed to be shared from HTML pages. The easiest way to use this is to use the "Embed Media" tool from the visual editor or the text editor. In the popup window that appears, paste the HTML code given to you by the content provider. Slide 10: Wiki /Blog Tips Make your wiki or blog your home page to help keep it updated. To remember to put important handouts or documents on your space, try this. After you print your document, don’t make copies it until you upload it. You can place it where you want it later. A Great Top 10 Tips from Wetpaint Central Give your home page a great name. Keep your home page text short. Put 4 to 5 links on your home page to other pages on your site. Tell people what they can do on your site. Add lots of photos and videos. Add links and descriptions of your photos. Avoid blank pages. Use headers and subheads. Use keyword tags on every page. Keep your site’s navigation menu simple – no more than 10 or 12 main pages.
