BigBlueButton Places in Mozilla Ignite Round #2

The BigBlueButton project is proud to announce that it was among the top projects that received funding in the second development round of Mozilla Ignite. See Mozilla Ignite’s blog post announcing the projects.

Since our last funding round, we have made some great progress on the HTML5 client: we conducted our first real world testing of the HTML5 client prototype with Dearborn Michigan Public Schools. Many thanks to Chris Kennenberg and Troy Patterson for their support.

We received $20k (USD) of funding from Mozilla Ignite in round two for supporting the development of an HTML5 + WebRTC client. Here’s a video of our round two pitch, which includes an overview of how we intend to invest the funds in the project.
