Go ahead, video chat with the whole team. In fact, invite everyone you know. Jitsi Meet is a fully encrypted, 100% open source video conferencing solution that you can use all day, every day, for free — with no account needed.
That’s the honest truth about modern software, it’s vulnerable. It’s ALL vulnerable so you have a choice to use something that is honest about it’s vulnerabilities or hides behind the door of closed source providing an ignorance is bliss situation.
Some great information and food for thought, @johnmclear is not trying to sell the product. Relevant to @dgilmour’s link to creativecommons & #OER I don’t think this is the time to pivot tools, but one to keep in mind.
I wonder about Etherpad which I just found out has video. Free, but without the problem of “commercial free”. Not sure about security cc @johnmclear
Zoom seems a bit of an ethical & security disaster but I think there are plenty of other worries around equity of support, environment and devices.
Etherpad being open source is certainly a positive.
Ive used etherpad in the past, a quick test of the video version shows it works fine on iPad and iPhone. A moot point for me as I think North Lanarkshire will be instructions us to use Teams.
In a primary setting I think there is a lot more to think about around video conferencing, at the moment I don’t think it is a golden bullet for our current problems.

Open education is not a short-term fix to a passing problem—it is a long-term solution to ensuring equitable, inclusive access to effective educational resources and learning opportunities.
In the same way open science is better science (the world is sharing COVID-19 research to create a vaccine), open education is better education.
So good, thanks David. Also, IMO, as much as possible should be accessible by the simplest tech.

Today’s walk in the park.
Recorded this in Victoria Park on Monday. I only recognise the crows and wood pigeon. This is near a busy road, very few cars now.
