very interesting tools. By the way, a couple of days ago there was a
mention of the WorkAdventure github repository with the assets of
rc3. BBB is also used (officially, I believe) for remote schooling in
parts of Germany, z.B. Berlin [0].

I add a question to the pool from an "engineering" point of view: what
would be the effort (in manhours and server resources) needed to implement
and run a custom WorkAdventure or a BBB instance?

Tangential to the topic, I will follow with interest how the upcoming
FOSDEM will be handled online, they have chosen a stack [1] that partly
matches the tools you mention: jitsi livestreams for Q&A session after
each pre-recorded talk and a Matrix instance for chatting.
