What is BigBlueButton?
BigBlueButton ™ (BBB) is an open source web conferencing tool to aid online learning. Pukunui integrates the web lecturing system with your Moodle LMS. This allows you to remotely teach your learners. You can share documents, webcams, audio, text based chat and screen share your desktop.
A lite* version of BBB to all of our clients FREE of charge!
We install a web conference plugin for Moodle, so within the LMS sessions can be recorded, and stored. So this gives easy access for absent learners or for later review. BBB has a built in whiteboard which lets you annotate over the top of your presentation or lecture notes. Most importantly, the software allows the presenter to control the view that the audience receives.
VoIP - join your web conference via a phone call
Additionally we can provide VoIP lines to dial into offering an additional and sometimes more stable way of joining the audio for the web conference. As a result, VoIP can improve the quality for users with unreliable internet connections. BBB also supports multiple users sharing webcams and audio simultaneously, ideal for tutorial groups or business conferences.
Finally, for more information, or to request a demo get in touch with us today. If you already have a Moodle hosting site with us, we can get you going with BBB immediately. Pricing for the full version can be found on your relevant country page.
*Pukunui's BBB lite is restricted to a maximum of 25 users, recordings expire after 7 days (not downloadable) and no breakout rooms for the chat module. The free / lite tier is meant for occasional use to sample / try out BigBlueButton and not for high volume, production use. We can not guarantee availability / access.
The iMoot team have been using BigBlueButton since 2013 to help facilitate a biannual online learning event focussing on Moodle - the iMoot. The event runs runs across timezones and has a global audience of hundreds.
Without this awesome open source web lecturing and web conferencing system, we would not be able to run our event. Fred and the team at Blindside Networks are so responsive to communication, and have gone out of their way to help and support us.
I thoroughly recommend BigBlueButton to anyone looking for a reliable and scalable web conferencing system designed for online learning.
