Live from Anywhere: Web Conferencing with Big Blue Button

Big Blue Button (BBB) is a web-based conferencing system which includes audio, video, slides, chat, and screen sharing capability. At TRU we host our own instance of BBB, which means that it is compliant with federal and provincial privacy legislation. It is available for use within Moodle, and through Mattermost. Through Mattermost, BBB can be used to connect with colleagues outside TRU. BBB sessions can also be recorded and shared for later use. In this session, participants will learn more about the features and functionality of BBB; initiate, record, and share a Big Blue Button video conferencing session in Moodle or Mattermost; and design a lesson plan for a class that includes the use of BBB.
