    skype for education

    has anyone looked at this?

    Welcome to Skype in the classroom | Skype Education

    We block skype for students, but been asked to look into this..

    are any other schools using this?

    Is there a way to allow this 'educational' skype without allowing them full blown access to skype?

    How do you block skype? Do you block the ports or block the .exe or something?

    if want to limit for example who they could phone etc then no it would be a all or no solution via either blocking via exe, port or url...

    However if want to stop them accessing features and adding skype credit. Then might be able to use combo of skype business client which can disable parts.. Then maybe able to use skype business accounts and limit them access to adding credit but then they could just login into there own account..

    What is main issue you feel stops you from using it with in the school?
