BigBlueButton, the open source web conferencing solution providing real-time sharing of audio, video, slides, whiteboard, chat and screen, will be incorporated into Moodle 4.0 as a standard feature.
Currently available as a Moodle plugin, BigBlueButton allows educators or managers to use breakout rooms, polls, multi-user whiteboard, and shared notes to engage learners.
Blindside Networks, the company that started the BigBlueButton project and developer of the popular Moodle plugin, will offer a built-in free tier hosting of BigBlueButton to enable any school running Moodle 4.0 to try out BigBlueButton right away.
The free tier hosting will include 60 minutes and 25 users per session, moderator webcam, and seven day non-downloadable recordings.
