For something befitting the education of technically capable people, one thing is to reject Zoom.
Zoom is unjust, because it requires users to run nonfree  programs, mistreating and limiting users.  
Zoom lied to users for years about its software's encryption capability and security. It also
installed malware to override security features of some browsers.  
Besides sending personal data straight te Facebook, Zoom enforces Chinese censorship against
those who voice its murderous repression of protests.
Please rethink that !
