Bible Study using Video Chat - can it work?

Hi all. I’m involved in a small 'bible study" group, and one of our members is moving away. Not real far, but with the cost of gasoline going up and up…

I’m curious if anyone has tried using video chat in the context of a religious study group. If so:

  1. Did it basically work, or were there unexpected and/or insurmountable problems?

  2. What software did you use? I’m a bit familiar with 2 way video chat using Skype and instant messengers.

  3. Is it actually possible to use video chat with more than 2 people involved?

  4. Do you have any helpful hints?

Thanks in advance to anyone who responds! :slight_smile:
