Using Skype through Teach 'n Go to conduct classes is possible. The Skype integration is suitable for both group lessons and one-on-one lessons.
Please follow the instructions I've included below on getting set up for both group lessons and one-on-one lessons.
First, you'll need to create a Skype conference call link. You can do this quickly on the Skype website.
Once the link is created, copy the link.
Next, in Teach 'n Go, create a new class. In the Classroom field dropdown, choose the option 'Skype Call'. The page will present a Skype Meeting Link field. Paste the link you generated on the Skype website here.
Every class should have its unique code to avoid conflicts.
If you visit the lesson card for this class, you will notice a link at the top of the lesson card. Click the link to get started.
In the student portal, students of this class will also access the Skype meeting through their school portal. Just ask them to visit the lesson card for the class, and the link will be at the top of the page.
They can also access it through the mobile app.
For one-on-one lessons, the Skype app is required for both the student and the teacher. You can download the Skype app from the below link.
To set up a one-on-one Skype class, you first need to ensure that the student's Skype ID is recorded in Teach 'n Go. To add the Skype ID, edit the student's profile, fill in the Skype ID field in the contact details section and save.
When you are ready to have your lesson, you can visit the relevant lesson card. Click on the student. If the student has a Skype ID, there will be an option to open Skype.
Clicking this will open either the Skype application (if you have it downloaded) or Skype through your browser. The relevant student account will be ready to call.
That's it. You're now set up for both group lessons and one on one lessons!
As always, if you need any assistance getting set up, please get in touch - we will be glad to help!
