Tapping Into Expertise via Skype

As my students are busy studying for their final examination, I was fortunate enough to be able to complete a brief interview with Exercise Physiologist Dr Grant Abt. In the interview I sought clarification for my students about how creatine supplementation can enhance performance.

Now, given that my students are actually no longer at school, (currently studying for exams), I decided to send the MP3 file in an MMS message to the students mobile phones ensuring that they could listen to it wherever they were. To make this possible I used the excellent www.smsglobal.com.au  

Although the conversation was short, it proved to be highly valuable and emphasised the breaking down of barriers that have held back learning for years. Experts are just a mouse click away.

  1. Nice initiative, Jarrod. I trialled a skype ‘master class’ practical with Tom Bell at ManchesterUni and FlindersUni PETE students this year and it worked very well.

  2. I would love to use Skype for my Yr 12 PE class in 2012. I have never used it before but don’t see this as the problem. My question is do you have any tips on getting ‘experts’ to skype with?
