We’ve created two new tutorial videos for BigBlueButton. The first video shows you how to use BigBlueButton as a Student (Viewer). It covers chat, joining the voice conference, sharing your web cam, and resizing windows. The second video shows how to present information using BigBlueButton. It includes how to upload slides, make another user presenter,
Yeah. It’s possible with BigBlueButton.
Mark Laporte, the project leader for TikiWiki, a very powerful open source CMS/Groupware project, recently proposed integrating BigBlueButton into TikiWiki as part of their eLearning strategy. 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.
