How long are the meetings? Can you group students into functional units and deliver the same comments during multiple independent meetings? Is faking your own death and moving to a quiet island village an option?

We need answers.

Some fairly vanilla options from various tech chats and AV articles.

0.$ - AUSDOM 1080P HD Webcam ($45 @ amazon)
$ - Logitech C920S ($70 @ logitech)
$.5 - Logitech C930E ($120 @ walmart; wider field of view?)
$$ - GoPro Hero 8 ($350 @ amazon)
$$$ - Insta360 One R ($430+ by feature; easy setup firmware-as-webcam feature)

I know GoPro made a bit of a splash as a zoom cam last year.

Anyway, I'd look for color correction, reliable frames, and a decent sounding mic if you don't already have one (make sure you have that set up correctly and the way you like before going into a meeting). Also look for where you want to mount it and make sure it's able.
I went with the logitech 920. I mean "Logi" since changing the name of your famous brand is very smart. I trust that brand and can't think of any instances where it let me down.

I just got the mechanical keyboard I ordered at the same time. I got the extra loud option.

It is a shame Uzique isn't here to see I finally upgraded. RIP Uzique. Gone but not forgotten.

Wouldn't silent be better for zoom meetings?

I am not typing during the Zoom meetings. I will be on mute anyway.

I dunno about the rebrand to logi. Too close to loogie. It would make more sense to just keep their logo and eliminate the name on a product. If they're not proud enough of it to do that, there's a problem.

There is probably some marketing rule about not having the word 'tech' in your name if you are a tech manufacturer. I remember for a time they went full "logi" but now seem to use their full name on a lot of boxes, labels, etc. Logitech has/had a good reputation. It's a shame some marketing people convinced them to rebrand.
