Looks like the proposal is getting a lot of support on the TikiWiki developer mailing list.
Lisa Hoover just published an article on BigBlueButton Brings Video Conferencing to Classrooms in OStatic, a GigaOM network site.
When we were recently covered by Web Resources Depot, our traffic really spiked.
Looking forward to seeing the magnitude of the GigaOM-effect.
We’ve released BigBlueButton 0.64 (code named Lickety-split).
This release increased the scalability and speed of desktop sharing, added finer-grain listener management, and new additions to the API. For more information see Release Notes.
Our mission is to make BigBlueButton the best web conferencing system for distance education.
In his Web Master Dearborn Schools blog, Chris Kenniburg gave his assessment of our progress so far:
[BigBlueButton] is a video meeting/conferencing software package that is integrated with Moodle. … It is a very complex program but the developers have made the user controls very simple. This is by far the best video/voice communication tool for Moodle.
Thanks Chris — looks like we are on the right track.
You can see us in the accepted list.
We’re looking forward to working with the GSoC students to improve BigBlueButton. (Here the list of projects ideas that we submitted for the application.)
Let the coding begin!
