Stop the presses, OBS Studio has a Virtual Camera that can be visible in Zoom meetings, now?

Oh, this changes a LOT about how I'm teaching my classes.

SO here's the thing:

When I share my screen in Zoom, it takes over the student's screen. The older ones know how to get out of that to do their work, but it's still a struggle for my younger students.

Taking over a screen can eliminate distractions, but I don't prioritize lectures. I want students to DO something. That means they need access to their screens.

And now I don't need to take that from them.
