BigBlueButtonBN Moodle Plugin ranked #9

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 online class.  Of all the LMS integrations for BigBlueButton, we believe the Moodle integration is the most comprehensive.  Here’s a screenshot of how the instructor can Moodle roles into BigBlueButton roles (such as creating a collaborate session where all students join as moderators).

Assignment of Roles


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.
