What is BigBlueButton?

BigBlueButton enables you to share your audio, slides, chat, video, and desktop. Built-in polling makes it easy to engage attendees.

A viewer (typically the student or committee member) can chat, send/receive audio and video, respond to polls, display an emoji (such as their raised hand), and participate in breakout sessions.

A moderator (typically and ODEMSA staff member) can do everything a viewer can, plus more. A moderator can mute/unmute other viewers, lockdown viewers (such as restrict them from using private chat), and make anyone the current presenter. There can be multiple moderators in a session.

The presenter (not always the moderator) can do the following: Upload slides, Use the whiteboard to annotate any side, Enable/disable multi-user whiteboard, Start a poll, Share a YouTube, Vimeo, or Canvas Studio video, Share their screen. More info
