Do you need to discuss homework, do a test review, ask a questions, or just simply talk? Talk it out by clicking on the CHAT picture below. This is a room that you can video chat with classmates, upload notes or documents to review with each other, etc. This gives us the opportunity to do live real time reviews with each other, even though we may not live in the same area. It negates having to leave home to study together. I have also provided instructions below on how to gain access to our private study room. If you have any issues accessing our room, please don’t hesitate to contact me using the Get In Touch page. Alternatively, if you are not the chatty type of person, you can use the discussion board to post your questions and/or upload files, etc. You can visit the forum by going to the Discussion Board page.
What is PalTalk?
PalTalk is a website that provides software which makes it possible to have group meetings (of any size) using your computer as a voice and text communication tool. It’s a cross between a text only chat group and a voice only telephone. The great benefit of PalTalk is that we can join with each other and have meetings in the comfort and convenience of our own homes.
Your computer needs to have working speakers and, if you want to talk also, a working microphone. If you don’t have a mic you can type your questions / comments for all to see in the room’s text box. Test your equipment before hand. You can do this easily by using Windows Voice Recorder from the Start->Programs->Accessories->Entertainment menu.
PalTalk Gatherings are always held at the same location:
- Open Website: http://www.paltalk.com
- Select Group: Miscellaneous, then Click on Other. Alternatively, you can search for Nursessity in the search box @ top.
- Select Room: Nursessity Chat Room
Note: PalTalk now supports MACs using this link: http://www.paltalkexpress.com/
