Lectures with interaction via Skype through people in conflict areas is a far safer option than sending students to dangerous places. At the same time they bring in the atmosphere from conflict areas in a way ordinary lectures wouldn’t be able to do so otherwise. Furthermore, the ability to interact with fighters of conflicts help students to reconstruct the interpretations of the conflicting parties. This is very important for the teaching of symbolic interactionalism and interpretative analysis of conflicts.
