We make use of a video conferencing application called WebEx.
This software can run as a small installation on your computer, (like Skype), or can run as a 'script' within your web browser, provided that your browser is set to run active scripts. The latter option is very helpful for those who are unable to install software on their computer because admin rights have been removed.
