This is a petition to change SOAS Japanese lectures and live videos back to Blackboard Collaborate from Zoom.

Many of the students and some of the teachers have been having more connection based issues and other problems after the move to Zoom from Blackboard Collaborate. For example, some students are forced to use their phones to listen to a recording's audio and use their laptops to see the recordings and lectures due to a software issue. Other students are even unable to access the Zoom meetings due to regional restrictions such as those living in China. Whilst using BB Collaborate, very few students were having concerns with the software in comparison to using Zoom. 

If we are to continue studying online for the rest of term 1 and possibly term 2 and beyond, we all believe it is vital to our education to be able to access the live videos and recordings with little hassle. Otherwise, many students will continue to face problems with the software and it could heavily affect the rate at which students can learn and the amount of content we can get through. 

Changing back to BB Collaborate, in our opinion, is the best option if we are to continue studying online.
