Thanks for the readings. It seems VoIP hasn't been implemented in a lightweight solution unfortunately. Mumble seems preferable here and another user mentioned screen sharing through vnc. Although I would prefer hosting screen sharing on my home server instead of having every one configure a server on their machine. We also don't really need remote control as we mostly use screen sharing for educational purposes when we can't work in person.
