About BigBlueButton

We are a project with a global mission. 

Our global mission is to make quality education available to every student on the planet.  This mirrors UNESCO’s fourth sustainable development goal: Quality Education and underpins the other UNESCO’s 17 sustainability goals. It’s our goal as well.

To achieve this goal, we created BigBlueButton, an open source virtual classroom is now localized into over 55 languages (thanks to our global community).  BigBlueButton’s users include educators, students, educational institutions, commercial companies, and sovereign nations.

The BigBlueButton World Conference 2023 is an annual gathering of the global community.  If you are interested in online learning, we invite you to attend and participate!
