  1. I have used Skype before, but unfortunately I have not be able to really repeat it many more times.

    Last year, my newspaper staff collaborated with a school in California on a newspaper article about how the midwest was behind the times when it comes to trends. We used Google Docs to write the stories and take notes, but the best was when we Skyped their staff so we could talk about the stories and plan out how we were going to work on the story.

    Skype is extremely easy and very user friendly. I hope that I can use it more often in the future.
