Blindside Networks started the BigBlueButton project in 2008 with one goal:
to provide remote students a high-quality online learning experience.
BigBlueButton is an open source web conferencing system for online learning. It enables teachers to engage remote students with real-time sharing of audio, video, presentation, chat, desktop, and polls. BigBlueButton has deep integrations with Moodle via the BigBlueButtonBN Moodle plugin (ranked #9 in overall downloads at moodle.org)
Blindside Networks provides commercial hosting and support for BigBlueButton to the Moodle community.
Road Map for BigBlueButton
Fred Dixon, the Product Manager for BigBlueButton, will give an update on the road map for BigBlueButton (including upcoming mobile and HTML5 client).
Planned Improvements to the Moodle Integration
Jesus Federico, a senior developer at Blindside Networks, will give an update on the planned improvements to the Moodle integration. We encourage everyone to attend and give us feedback to help ensure BigBlueButton evolves to meet your needs for on-line tutoring/coaching, group collaboration, and virtual classrooms.
