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.


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.

 

Big Thanks for AL Rachels for his endless contributions.

    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: https://github.com/drachels/moodle_skype_activity/tree/MOODLE_30_STABLE
    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.

    Hi Daniel,
    Are you going to register this as a new plugin if you cannot update the exhisting one? It would be nice to get it officially verified for use so that I can request it from our I.T. department to go on our live server.
    Best
    Paul

    Hi Paul,
    On multiple occasions in the past, I have written to the maintainer and have received a reply saying there would be a new release soon and that the delay was due to health reasons. While waiting, I've just kept a version up to date at github, as mentioned in previous posts. I'll try and contact him again.

    Hi, just a quick question, does this work with skype for business?

    Hi Chris, not really sure but it would not hurt to try it out. Basically all this module does is allow Moodle to create a Skype phone book based off the Skype ID's that users put in their profiles. When a user makes a Skype call, it uses whatever version of Skype you have on your computer.
