Are there extra layers of security in Conferences to eliminate hackers? I had someone hack my conference yesterday (ghosting a student's account and posting in the shared notes area) and post profanity. Ways I can send a password or manually allow students in to manage this problem?
I am the product manager for BigBlueButton. While I work at Blindside Networks, the company that provides hosting for Canvas Conferences to Instructure, and therefore can't speak on behalf of Instructure, I can respond to your question.
Users need to have logged in through Canvas to enter a conference. Can you be more specific on what you mean by "ghosting a student's account".
Are you using Personal Rooms or another way way to allow students to join a session?
I do have two instructors claiming that someone is creating and starting conferences in their courses, I am trying to investigate this issue, is there any loop whole Big Blue button conferences has where this could be possible? you can reply me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
