BigBlueButton is an open source web conferencing system for online learning.  The goal of the project is to enable instructors to effectively engage remote students.  The project supports live online classes, virtual office hours, and group collaboration with remote students. 

BigBlueButton supports real-time sharing of slides (including whiteboard), audio, video, chat, emojis, breakout rooms, and screen.  It also record all content for later playback.

Like Moodle, BigBlueButton is open source.  The BigBlueButton project was started in 2008 by Blindside Networks.  In addition our work on BigBlueButton core, we created this BigBlueButtonBN Moodle plugin so you can fully leverage BigBlueButton's capabilities from within your Moodle site.

The BigBlueButtonBN plugin enables you to:

  • Create multiple activity links to online sessions within any course
  • Restrict students from joining a session until a teacher (moderator) joins the session
  • Launch BigBlueButton in a separate window
  • Create a custom welcome message that appears at the top of the chat window when joining the session
  • Specify join open/close dates for the session that appears in the Moodle's calendar
  • Record a session
  • Access and manage recordings

The best way to install is directly from moodle.org.  For a video walkthrough of installing the plugin, click the image below


You’ll notice in the video that BigBlueButtonBN module comes pre-configured with a test BigBlueButton server, aptly called test-install.blindsidenetworks.com.  This server is maintained by Blindside Networks maintains to help test your installation with BigBlueButton.  Blindside Networks also develops and maintains the BigBlueButtonBN plugin. 

For information on setting up your own BigBlueButton server, see http://bigbluebutton.org/.

    Hi,
    I'm using moodle 3.8.3 together with latest version of BBB. I have a private instance of BBB, is it possible to use it through the plug in? I could not figure out how to do.
    Thank you

    Sharing the screen with BigBlueButton uses the ability of the browsers to capture the image using WeRTC; however, the browser does not capture the audio, only the image. Thank yuo from topbestsales.cxom

    As indicated in the description of the plugin. Please don't ask for support in this page. It is difficult to keep a conversation. Use the forums instead. https://moodle.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=7797

    Hi, I'm using Moodle 3.8, the newest version. But when I in the course create an BBB element, fill in the required fields, leave the rest by default. Then we start the save button. But the elemtnt is not saved.

    Hi using version 2.3.3 of the bigbluebutton plugin when you need to delete a recording, the bigblue confirmation window is displayed at the bottom of the screen preventing the selection of yes or no options using the mouse.
