So far, I’ve been really impressed with this platform, especially when it comes to facilitating large groups.

But, over the past few years many more platforms have been introduced, and recently I’ve been using Google Hangouts, Zoom, and Wiz IQ.
In this post I’m going to go through the four options and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each. Skype is the most used option when it comes to facilitating one-to-one lessons, and is actually the main advantage of using Skype as most of your potential students will either have it or will have heard of it. With the free version you can: – Call anyone who as a Skype account. – Take part in group calls (only using two webcams).
Google Hangouts doesn’t save the chats from the hangouts (at least, I can’t find this option anywhere; they do save the chats that take place outside of the video hangout though).
