SuperTintin - Record Your Skype Conversations


Have a Stellar Skype?  Record it and use it for your Lessons!


 Skype allows students across the world to converse and interact with each other on a regular basis. This is an extremely beneficial addition to any classroom as our society becomes more global. For the students forming relationships with children in other states or countries, their broadening horizons will enhance their lives for years to come.

As an avid user of Skype, I have experienced several scenarios in which an easy way to record and playback the call would be of great benefit to my students.  Here are a few examples:

  • Skype is a great tool for connecting groups of people. 
Since they can see and hear each other, often times students will become heavily engaged or interested in the call, and lose track of small details that they would otherwise take notes on.

  • Skype connects people anywhere on the planet.  
Occasionally there is a language or communication barrier, which can be addressed and overcome on playback.

  • In the cases of a unique experience, say a call from the US to Australia, many teachers will often facilitate a Skype call with a large group, say 30-50 students, possibly on both ends of the call.  
Unfortunately, large groups can become a distraction at times, and even something so minor as a cough or a sneeze will prevent part of the group from hearing something important. 

  • Similar to any phone call, once a Skype call is over, it’s over.  
It is not a book that can be reread for clarity.  Many teachers shy away from facilitating Skype calls as they are often a classroom management project, and teaching to the main points of the call can get lost in the shuffle.  It can be difficult for the teacher to pay attention to the call in some situations if technical difficulties occur, or there is a behavioral issue in the classroom.  Thus, teaching after the call does not occur.

SuperTintin addresses all of these concerns in one easy to use package.  

With SuperTintin, a teacher can record both the audio and video of their Skype session, and revisit later, potentially by adding it to their lessons as a video clip, or simply replaying the call and touching on main points with the class.  There is no need for teachers to furiously scribble notes while on a Skype, as they can playback at a later date, or even right after the call.

SuperTintin is a fully-featured audio and video recording software which allows Skype users to record their online conversations. These recorded conversations can be used for review purposes in the classroom, to share with others in the school or the students’ parents and/or for any other reason which the teacher and students see potential.

Here are a few of the features of SuperTintin for recording Skype calls:

  • Both Audio and Video: Record all audio and video streams including Skype voice mail and screen sharing video.
  • Easiest to Use: Very easy to record and playback.
  • Highest Quality: Supertintin records by capturing original media data while making sure there is no data loss. Because it is not a screen-capture recorder, video quality is not affected at all if you open, close and/or resize messenger windows while recording.
  • Picture-in-Picture: Record video in Picture-in-Picture, Side-by-Side, Remote-Only, or Local-Only mode! And you can also record local and remote video as two separate files.
  • Saving. Supertintin lets you easily save your conversations to your computer's hard drive or a portable USB drive, allowing you to re-watch your conversations as easily as watching your favorite DVD.
