    I have used Skype often for meeting with clients in other cities. With the screen sharing features I have also worked with graphic artists and walked through changes on screen by sharing the mouse of one screen.

    I have also used it to collaborate with a small group of students on a project with industry. You are limited to 3 users I believe which was fine for our project.

    One limitation is that both parties have to have the software and an address set up. Inn only take about 5 minutes to download the software.
