So, while looking for an alternative way to record these interviews from around the world, I sent out a tweet and someone in my PLN, tweeted back: meetings.io.
Meetings.io is a free service. You DO NOT have to create an account to use the service. You can go to the site, open a meeting and then email the link to people you would like to speak to. It works great. Images are clear (better then Skype), locations are shown, sound is clear and images are side by side so you can see each interaction clearly.
If you create, a free account, you get more. With an account you get a private room that is always open with the same address, so people don't need more emails. Meetings.IO promises to have the following up and running very soon: note taking section, open a live chat box, share files, and screen share. These options show up in your private room now, but if you click them they state they will be up and running soon. The note taker function is up and running now. See Features
I really found this site to be quick, easy to use and very clear. However, check in your schools to see if it is blocked or if they block ports this software needs to work. It was blocked at my school, but a great option for home use. Let me know what you think after you use it.
