The last fourteen months have radically reshaped teaching, and BigBlueButton has been at the heart of this change. We’ve hosted hundreds of millions of students and millions of their teachers, across more than 55 different languages.
BigBlueButton World is an opportunity for us to gather and learn from educators, administrators, and developers from around the world about what we’ve learned, what’s changed in education, and where we’re heading next.
BigBlueButton World will take place over four days from June 21-24.
