      ----- eGroups Talk: Just Like a Phone Call, only Free! -----

      Looking for a more personal way to keep in touch over the
      Internet? Now you can carry on live voice conversations
      with individuals or groups in your very own eGroups Talk
      room. Best of all, it's FREE - kiss long-distance and
      international telephone charges goodbye!

      To get started you'll need a Windows 95, 98 or NT computer
      with a microphone, speakers and a suitable sound card. Once
      you're set up, just click the 'Talk' tab on your My Space
      page and type in the email address of the person you'd like
      to talk to, once they're logged in. You can also hold
      private conversations with eGroup members by visiting your
      favorite eGroup and clicking the 'Talk' tab.

      TALK TIP: Try using the Calendar to schedule a time for
      group Talk sessions.

      ------------------ eGroups: A Class Affair -----------------

      The end of summer is here, and for many of us, this means
      back-to-school. Whether you're a teacher returning from
      vacation to vocation, or a student returning from coastline
      to cosine, one of the best ways to ease into the school year
      is with an eGroup!

      Use eGroups to get the most out of campus life:
      + Create a class mailing list
      + Schedule practice and game times for your sports team
      + Use the Calendar to organize your class schedule
      + Maintain an alumni network for your alma mater

      Here are some examples of eGroups created by users for life
      at school:

      Model United Nations E-News
      This mailing list enables members of the Model United
      Nations to keep in touch with teachers, friends and other
      participants in the Model UN community.

      College Music Update Chat
      An eGroup for readers of College Music Update (CMU) magazine
      - the UK's "fortnightly guide to new music" - connecting
      college radio, the press, record labels and fans all over
      the UK and beyond.

      Collegiate Athletics
      A mailing list dedicated to college athletics, but with
      particular emphasis on American college football.
