Services like Jitsi and BBB support text chat as well as audio and video.  
They also make it easy to share screen contents.  So it's definitely better 
than IRC for such things.


Also IRC use has dropped off following a recent freenode issue, the above is 
one of many web pages about the topic that I think gives a reasonable summary 
of the issues without taking too much reading time.

My message to this on Sunday subject "hands-on training" covers the options.  
The advantage of a VM over your own PC is that it's in a known state before 
things start and I can easily login to check things if you have problems while 
you won't want people logging in to your own PC.
