Is your school forcing you to use Zoom, Skype, or other proprietary videoconferencing software to learn or teach? Freedom is important to education. Read about freedom-respecting choices at


@fsf find it hard to believe that you haven't included the best video conferencing tool available, specifically designed for the education context: BigBlueButton -

@lightweight @fsf While I like Jitsi, I agree that not to mention BBB Is a strange oversight.

@stevefoerster @fsf I've used both Jitsi and BBB extensively (like every day for the past 4 and 2 years respectively) and BBB is vastly superior for educational contexts (especially for groups of more than 8-10 participants) in my experience... Given the context of the original post, seems a weird omission.

@Dave Lane could be that Jonas had another idea to do a video conferencing project on Debian, and i failed him to start programming it
