Thanks for the shout out for Online Interviews in Real Time ;-)

You mentioned Adobe Connect as one of your options. Connect has recording
capability built in. It allows you to view the recording in Connect or to
save the recording in other formats.

>From my view, the fewer kinds of software etc.you use, the fewer
opportunities for something to go wrong-- so using Connect presents less
risk than Skype with another service for recording. You'll have less to
worry about when you want to focus on the interview itself.

If you have a conference call service you can enter it into your "audio
profile" in Connect and use the phone for audio, or you can use VOIP.

Connect also allows you (or the research participants) to share other
documents, images or digital artifacts. If you are not using those tools you
can just use the camera pods in the size you like.

All of that said, you can find a number of free Skype recording tools, such
as Vodburner.

I'd be happy to communicate with you off-list if you have more questions:
