Help! Classes will be replaced by video-conferencing lectures soon, because of the Coronavirus spread. I fear that the instructors will want to use FB for this, because it is what they know. I want to suggest alternatives. Any ideas?
Jitsi Meet has been awesome for me, but will it handle a group of 10 or 20 people?
What video conferencing software do you recommend? I need something that will not make any participant join a bad social network. What are the best options?
@skiring Where are you from?
Jitsi has a bad noise reduction in my experience. In my country they are using microsoft teams which is less than ideal, but audio it's ok.
I would suggest moodle, with the bigbluebutton it does more or less what MS TEAMS tries to accomplish but in a way less painful way.
If your only problem is videoconferencing maybe bigbluebutton alone can work fine.
I am not totally sure about the permission system in #moodle though. There is quite a granular system in MS TEAMS which can work at institutional level... it should work just the same with moodle, and it's already used by many universities anyway
