Apple iChat AV is included with all Mac OS X computers and can
work with any Google Talk, AIM, MobileMe and Jabber account, on
either a Mac or a Windows computer. If your school is Mac-based,
or if any of your teachers have a Mac laptop with an iSight camera,
it's particularly easy. You can attach your computer video output
to a projector to put the image up on a larger screen so your
students will be able to see easily.
