Video Call

Apparently, the FCCN considers normal to install apps that does not control, on computers that are not its own, to access academic events that should be public. Secure access via browser is not recommended, nor is it properly referred in the FCCN Colibri support documentation.

ESOP warned of to the lack of freedom of choice, the impacts on citizens' computer security and the possible failure of the FCCN to comply with the Open Standards Law by allowing the Colibri platform, used in public academic events, to not explain how we can participate in these events without installing a proprietary application that has already had security problems

However, this possibility exists and for that ESOP prepared this tutorial that explains in three steps how to watch or participate in a Colibri event without installing the Zoom application.
