What is "BigBlueButton (BBB)?" (Updated April 19)

Posted by:

BigBlueButton (BBB), also known as Schoology Conferences, enables real-time sharing of audio, video, and screen(s) to allow teachers to livestream with students in their classes. BBB is embedded in the Schoology Learning Management System in the section named Conferences. You can find Conferences in the gray navigation bar on the left side of the screen. BBB enables instructors to engage users with interactive chat (public and private), uploaded presentations (PowerPoint, PDF, etc.), whiteboard controls (text, drawing, etc.), multi-user whiteboard (everyone can write on the whiteboard), shared notes, emojis, polling, and breakout rooms.
