As far as I know, it's not yet possible to call a Skype account from a landline phone, but Voice Over IP (VOIP) is definately a way for you to reach your distance students on the cheap. IPEVO is now offering a handset for $30 that plugs in to your PC or Mac and allows you to use your Skype account as though you were on the phone. This is going to be really useful when your students can pick up their phone and call your Skype account at no cost to them! Goodbye paying for a toll-free line!
