Access BigBlueButton on MoodleCloud

Modified on Tue, 26 Dec 2023 at 04:33 AM

To access BigBlueButton on MoodleCloud you need to create a BigBlueButton activity in your course.

You can add a BigBlueButton activity to any course. Here’s how:

  1. Click to Turn the editing mode on.
  2. Go to the Topic and click Add an activity or resource.
  3. Add a Room name, Welcome message, choose your settings (including whether the sessions can be recorded), and then Save and Display.
  4. Once saved, participants can join in. Any recordings will show below the Recordings heading when they are ready (this may take a few minutes to occur). 
*You can have up to 100 students in a BigBlueButton conference and up to 8 in each Breakout Room. Your recordings are kept for 7 days on a time-limited MoodleCloud Free trial site, and 365 days on any paid plan.
*If you are having issues with your BigBlueButton we suggest you contact Blindside Networks, who own the plugin, by visiting their community pages or our Moodle Forum discussions on using BigBlueButton.
