Skype

It's a great tool for working on projects with colleagues or classmates and for faculty holding virtual office hours.

More advanced options are available at a competitive cost, including
sharing your computer screen over the Internet, group video calls, telephone calls (to land lines or mobile phones), and SMS (text messaging to mobile devices.
