Dear Jitsi Community,
A little background.
I provide Internet service to rural communities in Colorado. Many school districts are going to online classes. I spoke to various schools and they plan to use a variety of video conferencing system, including Google.
Basically, video produced by a teacher is going to transported hundreds of miles away to be transported back down to student that might be a mile away from the teacher. Obviously, a local distribution model makes most sense.
The questions I have are:
- Is the software a good fit for an online school?
- If have have a server at a local distribution point in a town/city can someone in the community login and install the software? If so, what would be the charge? What’s the cost to help when there is a problem?
- If there are 5 classes of 20 students do we have to have 5 instances of the software on the server? What are the specs of the server, storage, RAM, etc.
- How long would it take to setup a system for use?
Are present I don’t have any schools asking for a solution, however when a school system starts having problems with existing systems then they will be looking elsewhere. So, I’m looking for people in the community that can partner to provide an alternative to schools. .
Thank you for you contemplation of the above.
