Pretty much no reputable school will touch SL after getting burned.
And educators talk so those who know SL to be a black hole will simply educate others about how they treat educators.

Zoom’s servers are in China. Careful w/ lack of confidentiality.

I'm glad it's working for her. My desire to take students into SL again, as you folks know, is nil.

We are finding that students working remotely have trouble with Zoom. Some have to use their phones, others have slow connections. I can barely manage a one-on-one meeting via video from home. I'm using Google for file sharing of non-confidential work and collaboration, plus a few short YouTube vids.

On the East Coast at least, broadband is slower than it was before we all came home. I've read that game services are being given lower priority by the telecomms. That's rumor, and I'd like to know if it's true.
