How do you access BigBlueButton within Moodle?
BigBlueButton has now been integrated and can be accessed through our own hosted MoodleCloud sites.
MoodleCloud free sites come with 10 BigBlueButton users per session (this is a great way to access BigBlueButton for a select group or to simply test out the functionality.), 50 users per session for the Starter plan and 100 users for the Moodle for School plans.
In your MoodleCloud site, you can add a BigBlueButton activity to any course. Give it a name, description and then you are ready start a session.
Once a session is up and running, participants can join in.
If you have a Moodle site and would like to also integrate BigBlueButton, please contact your local Moodle Partners who can provide more information.
