Web Conferencing: Big Blue Button for Canvas Courses

Big Blue Button:

BigBlueButton enables real-time sharing of your audio, slides, chat, video, and desktop with students. Built-in polling makes it easy to engage students and recording your lectures means that you can make them available for later review.  Students are engaged through the sharing of emoji icons, polling, and breakout rooms.  Big Blue Button is available in all Canvas courses and organizations.  Participants must be enrolled in a Canvas course or organization to use Big Blue Button.  If you need to invite a guest speaker or Non-Morgan guest, please consider using Google Hangouts.
