Your Moodle version

Activities: Skype

Maintained by ETHz ETH LET
Skype Activity Module for moodle 1.9- download can be found here:

Skype (IPA: [skaɪp], rhymes with type) is a software program created by the Swedish and Danish entrepreneurs Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis. Skype allows users to make telephone calls over the internet to other Skype users free of charge, or to landlines and cell phones for a fee. Additional features include instant messaging, file transfer, short message service, video conferencing and its ability to circumvent firewalls.

By Amr Hourani

With this module, you can make Video calling, send files, chat, send sms, and use skype cast with your collegues!

Note: Old moodle skype module is not available anymore, and I can not support it. This is an alpha release, I will enhance it once I have time.


Cheers from Amr Hourani

    Hi, this is useful add-on as skype connection teacher-student is handy for a distant contact.

    I would be very glad if the "mod_skype" addon will be maintained.

    I have tried to contact the maintainer, Amr Marc, without a response since July 2014. I have made updates myself so I could use this activity. I have versions for Moodle 2.7, 2.8, and 2.9. Over the next few days I will try to get it up on github. Meanwhile, if anyone wants a copy, contact me.

    I've had some health issues over the past few weeks and may have missed replying to one or two people who messaged me and asked for copies of the updated Skype. So just in case, here is the link to it on github:
    Switch to whichever branch you need, then click the Download Zip button. Extract the files and upload to your moodle/mod folder. Change the folder name to skype then go to Notifications to complete the install.
