der.hans: Big Blue Button Video Conferencing

Description:
Big Blue Button (BBB) is a Free Software video conferencing tool with good moderation tools.
Originally created for use with classrooms, it also has instructional options and ties into Moodle.

BBB doesn't require extra software to use with desktops, lapstops, phones or tablets as it uses the WebRTC browser standard.

BBB Presentation features include:

* video conferencing
* shared chat
* shared editing
* showing documents and video
* breakout rooms

The Greenlight project is an addon for instance administration.

It includes some necessary moderation tools including:

* password protected call
* waiting room
* presenter role
* participant sharing restrictions ( lock out microphone, video, chat, etc. )
* kickout disruptors

The presentation will cover using Big Blue Button from an attendee's perspective, including a feature list and a tour of the user interface.

AZLoCo has been using Big Blue Button on a home server for at least a decade.
Recently BBB switched to WebRTC and the LoCo has been quite happy with that upgrade.

In the Free Software community there are some community run BBB instances available for testing.
You can also install BBB on your own system and run your own instance.
Alternatively, there are a few commercial hosting options available.

The PLUG general meeting will use a hosted Big Blue Button instance.
The Free Software Stammtisch will also use the hosted BBB instance for this month's meeting on Tuesday the 19th.
