Need a floss Zoom alternative? I'm a big fan of Big Blue Button. Meet.Coop hosts it for me, on infrastructure powered by renewable energy, for quite a bit less than what a Zoom Pro account costs.

@trashheap of all the stuff my profs used for online lectures so far, bbb was the most pleasant. What I especially love about it, that you can just join as a listener, without having to give it mic permissions

@trashheap Social.Coop is a member of Meet.Coop so members of Social.Coop get BBB accounts as part of their membership. It would be cool if other instances joined Meet.Coop...

Everything is better than Zoom. I've had some success with introducing Jitsi at work. It's almost like zoom but with lipsync and lower latency.
