Premium Hosting for BigBlueButton
Welcome! We are the company that started the BigBlueButton project in 2008. We are passionate about building the best open source web conferencing system for on-line learning.
We also provide a premium tier of hosting that gives you the following additional capabilities:
1. All recordings are accessible as videos
A video file is the easiest way for students to view a recorded session, either on their desktop or from their mobile device (such as an iPad, iPhone, or Android device). The video captures everything in the meeting (except chat messages). The chat messages are played back in sequence in a text column next to the video.
To see a sample video, click the image below.
The videos can be uploaded into other content management systems, such as YouTube or Vimeo. Contact us if you have any special requirements for integration with other systems.
2. Your users can dial-in into any session
We can optionally add dial-in number so that students, teachers, or external guests have the option of calling into the voice conference bridge (additional cost). The dial-in number appears in the welcome message for each session.
3. Invite guests into your session
We can enable every session to offer an invite URL that, when clicked, provides you a URL that you can send to an external guest to join the session.
When a guest clicks the invite URL, they are prompted to enter their name.
Once the guest has joined, BigBlueButton will display the word ‘(guest)’ in front of their name.
4. Breakout Rooms
When setting up a breakout room, instructors can specify a time limit, number of breakout rooms, and arrange students (drag-and-drop between groups). When breakouts are in session the instructor can monitor any session (join the audio or fully join). And, at any time, the instructor can end the breakout rooms and pull students back to the main room.
5. Branded Landing Page
We can optionally provide access to BigBlueButton outside your learning management system via a URL. We use your institution’s logo, customize a list of rooms (with passwords for moderator and viewer) and provide a recordings URL to access recordings. This is a quick and easy way to enter a BigBlueButton session external to your LMS.
6. Commercial support
We provide your institution with 2nd level technical support for BigBlueButton as well as access to our support documentation.
