Blindside Networks has developed and supported the BigBlueButtonBN plugin for moodle for over five years now. The BigBlueButtonBN plugin is about giving instructors a simple (yet powerful) way to integrate BigBlueButton into their courses.
We recently saw it was ranked #9 in overall downloads for all Moodle plugins!
We’ve recently added features such supporting custom roles and giving the instructor the ability to pre-upload a presentation for the on-line class. Of all the LMS integrations for BigBlueButton, we believe the Moodle integration is the most comprehensive. Here’s a screen shot of how the instructor can Moodle roles into BigBlueButton roles (such as creating a collaborate session where all students join as moderators).
There is also a RecordingBN resource module for consolidating the recordings in a course, but the BigBlueButtonBN integration now shows the recordings associated with the activity link (you can still use the RecordingsBN if you want, but it’s not needed).
If you are using Moodle and want to integrate BigBlueButton into your site, we recommend you check out the BigBlueButtonBN plugin for Moodle. The full source is available at our GitHub repository for Blindside Networks.
We will continue to maintain and enhance it based on feedback from the community. If you would like more information on the plugin, don’t hesitate to contact us.tpl archive
The Moodle development pace has been accelerating over the past two years, which is great. Blindside Networks has been updating the BigBlueButtonBN and RecordingsBN integrations for Moodle upon each release.
With the release of Moodle 2.4, we now have an update release that we’ve tested across all Moodle 2.x builds (2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and now 2.4). This 1.0.8 release has been tested for the past few months with a number of Blindside Networks customers and Moodle community users.
