Engage your students with #MysterySkype | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

Mystery Skype is an educational game, invented by teachers, played by two classrooms on Skype. The aim of the game is to guess the location of the other classroom by asking each other questions.

It's suitable for all age groups and can be used to teach subjects like geography, history, languages, mathematics and science.

Ulrike Grabe's insight:

The ten ways to use Skype (or Google+ Hangouts, for that matter) mentioned in the article are:

"1) Connect with international classrooms

2) Learn a musical instrument

3) Professional development

4) Meet with librarians

5) Guest lecturers

6) Practice interviews

7) Have mystery call!

8) Meet exchange students

9) Give students background tasks while Skyping

10) Parent teacher conferences"

...and may I add from own experience: allow a student, who has to stay at home with a broken leg, to follow or catch up on class.
