Premium Hosting For BigBlueButton

We take care of hosting so you can take care of your students.

Hosting that scales to your needs

We provide hosting for BigBlueButton with the additional features outlined below

"It just works! We have implemented BigBlueButton in all of our courses, improving communication, student engagement, and – most importantly – opportunities for reinforcing course content. Blindside Networks provides premium hosting for us and they are an absolute dream to work with. They have been true partners with us every step of the way, and are now the standard against which we measure any vendor we consider. Fantastic to work with in every respect."

Video Playback

Your classes get recorded as a single video file (click the right for an example).
 
The video captures everything in the meeting with the exception of the chat messages, which playback on the right-hand side.
 
And we don’t charge any extra for storage of videos.  Your instructors can record thousands of hours for flipped classrooms.  We’ll store them all.

Dial-in numbers for every session

BigBlueButton offers built-in high-quality, low-latency audio.
 
To reduce your support efforts, for any situation when an instructor can’t get their microphone to work, we provide dial-in numbers for every session.  Instructors can simply call in and continue the class.

Invite External Guests

Want to invite a guest lecturer into a session?
 
Easy to do — every class has an invite link (visible only to instructors) where they can click to invite external users into the class.
 
No need to create accounts in the LMS.

Meeting Statistics For Every Recorded Session

With meeting statistics you can now analyze user participation in your recorded BigBlueButton sessions.  Instructors can use this data to identify high and low participating students and to gauge comprehension based on polling results.
 

Breakout Rooms

We support the latest features of BigBlueButton such as breakout rooms.
 
With breakout rooms instructors can give students their own sessions to collaborate (with time limits), monitor those sessions, and bring them back to the main room.
 
Using breakout rooms increases collaboration among students and increases learning.

Branded Landing Page

You can easily use BigBlueButton outside the learning management system.
 
We provide your institution with a Branded Landing Page — with your institution’s logo — with a set of permanent rooms (such as “Room – 1”, “Room – 2”, and so on).
 
This makes it easy for faculty, staff, and other groups on campus to collaborate together outside the LMS,

Commercial Support

We provide your institution with training, help-desk support, user guides, and 2nd level technical support by phone and e-mail ticketing to ensure your teachers and students can fully leverage BigBlueButton.
