1. Introduction


Big Blue Button is our virtual classroom or online web conferencing session. Virtual classroom sessions are to deliver a high quality learning experience to remote student. When logged into the virtual classroom, users have the option of sharing their video and audio over the web using built-in or external devices. Multiple participants and a presenter can be sharing their video and audio at the same time.

Moderator is the person who handles the conference. The moderator has complete control over all functionality within the Big Blue Button session. Moderator will be able to mute, un-mute and eject any of the participant at any time. Members can handle only their own video/audio. All members of the virtual classroom can take part in a group chat or private chat.
