Skype in the Classroom, a video networking service for educators worldwide, is officially out of beta, the company said Wednesday.
The service, which has been in beta since December, allows educators to collaborate with others around the world over video. The VoIP provider said it developed the service "in response to, and in consultation with, the growing number of teachers using Skype to help their students learn."
