Today we deal with closure of schools, colleges and universities across the world because of the 2019 Coronavirus pandemic. Worldwide educators have quickly moved to online platforms and remote education. Shinas College of Technology has formed a committee for this research to find the most reliable video conferencing software which is both student and teacher friendly. Students are also expected to contribute to this research. Everybody knows that Zoom, a video conferencing software has seen a tremendous increase in usage these days, but it is not recommended by many security experts due to privacy concerns. So, Zoom is not included in this research. Shinas College is looking for a software that is cost effective and user friendly. Features that are important include Mobile support, Electronic White board, Chat software, HD Audio and Video, Desktop sharing, File sharing, and also a free trial offer. It should accommodate at least 30 concurrent users at a time.
