1:00pm to 1:45pm
The need for synchronous learning tools is increasing as faculty and students look for more ways to teach and collaboration on-line.
For three years, the BigBlueButton project has been building an open source web conferencing system for on-line learning that is tightly integrated into Sakai.
This session will be hosted by the Product Manager for BigBlueButton (Fred Dixon), the maintainer of the Sakai Meeting Tool (Jesus Federico), and Scott Siddall (Managing Partner of Longsight).
We will provide you a detailed update on the latest developments of BigBlueButton (including improvements to record and playback), the efforts of the developers to support HTML5 clients and non-flash environments, and the road map for future versions of BigBlueButton.
During the presentation, we will share with you best practices for integrating real-time collaboration into your teaching (one-on-one tutoring, virtual office hours, and live classes).
In return, we welcome your feedback on BigBlueButton and on the plans for improving BigBlueButton for the Sakai community.
Fred Dixon is the CEO of Blindside Networks, the company that started the BigBlueButton project.
Jesus is a senior developer at Blindside Networks and is the lead maintainer of the Sakai Meeting Tool.
Scott Siddall is the Managing Partner with Longsight, a Sakai hosting company that has over two years experience using BigBlueButton with Sakai.
