Merging Technologies: Tutoring with Skype and OneNote

I will give resources, downloads, methods, and suggestions for tutoring students via freeware Skype webcam software.  ManyCam is freeware that will be used in conjunction with Skype to allow those involved in the conversation to see your desktop.  Microsoft OneNote is an often overlooked tool in collaboration that is comes with any Microsoft Office 2007 suit.  Most computers running office have this great tool at your disposal.  It will be the platform for working math equations, although Microsoft paint can be used in the same manner.

A wireless writing tablet is a wonderful option when tutoring math and is recommended.
