Learning Cheatsheet - Integrating Skype

Through the use of Skype’s button generator, you can allow your users to connect to you in a whole new way. If you’re already a Skype member, you can customize your Skype button’s functions here. After you’ve copied the generated code (see the sample below), you can add it directly into a course.
    <em>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="//www.skypeassets.com/i/scom/js/skype-uri.js"></script>
    <div id="SkypeButton_Chat_username_1">
    <script type="text/javascript">
    Skype.ui({
    "name": "chat",
    "element": "SkypeButton_Chat_username_1",
    "participants": ["username"],
    "imageSize": 24
    });
    </script>
    </div>
    </em>

Adding to Your Courses



You can add a Skype button to your courses just like you’d add a learning object. First, begin editing the desired Course Page. Once you’re editing the page, select a section to add it to, then follow these steps:
  1. Select the Course Content icon
  2. Create a new block of HTML
  3. Paste the code from Skype
  4. Add to Course, Submit Changes

If integrating Skype into your Axis LMS, you will need to adjust the settings of your Skype account to accept Skype Calls from Anyone
