In this module, we will review the BigBlueButton, the video conferencing software integrated into Canvas.
To navigate to BigBlueButton and join an ongoing conference, click BigBlueButton on the Course Navigation Menu and then click the Join button next to the conference you wish to join.
When joining a BigBlueButton conference, you'll need to confirm your audio settings.
After clicking to join a conference, you will be prompted to indicate how you would like to join the audio. There are three options:
If you select Microphone from the options, a private echo test will be performed where it will ask you to speak a few words and ask if you could hear the audio. If Yes is selected then you will join the conference, if No is selected then it will continue to troubleshoot with you.
Once you have joined a BigBlueButton conference there are many tools for you in the interface. Let's review some of them.
