If I have to move my class online, what's a gdpr-compliant service that could deal with 30+ students and doesn't require special software?
I never do real time stuff online with big groups and interactivity
.... Discord? HAHAHAHAHA no.
@Nikolai_Kingsley I've never used this, so I'm taking your "no" at face value
i've heard a lot of bad things said about Discord, which is why i said "..no", and yet my experience of it has been uniformly undramatic. chat seems to work well, there's provision for audio, sharing pictures and video.
i think the bad press comes from Discord instances full of idiots. i've been lucky.
@Nikolai_Kingsley @celesteh they've also increased the number of people who can access a stream at once to help people who need to work remotely https://twitter.com/discordapp/status/1237845208571588618
@celesteh BigBlueButton - fully open source. Your institution should be proactively trialling this now if they have any sense; relying on an external partner like Zoom will be inadequate, I can't see any way they can scale for the demand under their current pricing.
@celesteh riot.im perhaps?
