Is it possible to use /BigBlueButton/ without having an account? Is it 
possible to keep rooms always open?

Is it possible that all the users in a room share their screens at the 
same time?

How does /BigBlueButton/ share bandwidth? It costs a lot to have at 
least 250 Mb / s bandwidth for the server machine. i only have 50 Mb / s 
which might not be sufficient for serving /BigBlueButton/.//

For /Jitsi/, one does not have to install anything although it is 
possible. we can just go to<room name>.
