I would like to share my experience during the last few weeks.
I am university professor. I teach Fluid Machinery, Heat Transfer and
Computatinal Fluid Dynamics in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.
I have a concurrent group of 40+ students. I have been using jitsi meet
sucessfully. I mainly use Audio in/out, Chatt text in/out, Screen
sharing in/out, Window Sharing in/out, GIMP window sharing to share
Out: from professor (me) to students.
I connect using a laptop+headset+mouse+keyboard+29inch FHD monitor
running Fedora with Firefox+GIMP+Evince+Gedit. Sometimes I use
smartphone+headset running Android with jitsi meet app.
Students connect using laptops, desktops and smart phones.
Laptop/desktop run windows and mac with Chrome and Firefox. Smartphones
run Android and iOS with jitsi meet app.

I understand your frustration, what is worse is that some job

discriminate against anyone not having the ability to use zoom. Or
not want to due to the number of security issues that have been
