BigBlueButton 0.9.0 Released

The BigBlueButton project has just announced the released of BigBlueButton 0.9.0 — the twelfth major release of the project. Blindside Networks started the BigBlueButton project in 2008 and we’ve managed each of the core released.

We have high standards for each release. In over eleven months of development and over five months of testing, working with the BigBlueButton community at large, our goals were to improve the quality of the product (such as adding support for webRTC-based audio) while making the interface simpler for both instructors and students. We then incorporate hosting environment enables us to scale to the needs of even the largest schools.

“We at National University College-Online Division are very happy with our change to BigBlueButton. With our previous solution we had over 50 support tickets/month. After switching to BigBlueButton, that number dropped to 6 or 7 tickets/month. With our previous solution we used to get tickets from both students and faculty. But now with BigBlueButton we are only receiving tickets from faculty which demonstrates how user friendly this solution can be for students.” says Mariangie del Valle, Senior Director, Information Technology, National University College-Online.
