If your computer science class is using Zoom for remote learning, convince them to switch to Jitsi and spend a few sessions studying the source code to learn how video conferencing works

@sir I'd love to but I don't think my die-hard Java professor would be up for it

@sir Hm I didn't realise that. I may mention it to him on Monday

@sir the only class I have that uses Zoom is Calculus
although we just use Blackboard Collaborate for online lecture

@sir
In am ideal world, that's what we.would be using.
But it was hard enough to get these remote classes working for everyone. I'm not making a suggestion to change it now.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

@sir I found the Jitsi Meet server is pretty easy to set up for a Java application, all things considered. A lot of the setup process is still a bit manual, but I got it going on Debian Buster and working smoothly for work relatively easily, and the users adapted to it very well. Getting recording going with Jibri was a bit of a bitch, though; the instructions there are patchier, and the whole thing feels very clunky.
