Video Conferencing Systems

Virtual classrooms (BigBlueButton)

BigBlueButton is an OpenSource software and is licensed under a LGPL license.

Virtual classrooms using BigBlueButton have a rich feature set, such as desktop sharing and presentation of files (e.g. Microsoft Office documents, Open Office documents, PDF documents), markers or notes directly in the document (e.g. pointer, zoom function and marker function), chat with all participants and private chats, recordings etc.

Access to the application is via your course in StudIP with the "Meetings" module activated.
