Automatically generated conferences with BBB

Automatically generated conferences with BBB

We use BBB conferences for virtual classes which follow based timetable. Our lecturers create conference 15 minutes before class time so that students get notification email before it. We wish lecturers could set up appointment time for "automatically sending invitation". With this function, they just need to create all conferences in a week at the beginning, set up appointment time and then done.

hien.btt@buv.edu.vn, instructors using the native Canvas conferencing tool (Big Blue Button) can set up conferences ahead of time, and invitations will be sent out when they create the conferences, as detailed in How do I create a conference in a course?  As the documentation suggests, calendar events are a great way to position those conferences.

We would like to move this forward as a request to be able to schedule conferences in BBB for specific dates and times, with invitations sent out on those dates 15 minutes before the time of the conferences. So that our members can appropriately assess this request, could you confirm that you're using the native Conferencing tool—and if not, have a look through the external tools referenced in Web Conferencing Resources and identify the tool your school is using?

Thanks.

Hi Stefanie,

Thank you for your information. Yes, we are using BBB tool now (we installed its premium few weeks ago)

Best regards,

Thanks for confirming that, hien.btt@buv.edu.vn‌. We've opened the idea for voting as a request for this enhancement to the partner integration with Big Blue Button.

Thanks a lot, Stefanie

I definitely would find this feature handy to create a calendar item that scheduled a BBB Conference.  I would like to use it in concert with the appointment scheduling feature of calendar as well.  That is to be able to have an appointment scheduled with a student and then be able to see them through video.

Hello!

My coworker and I were just talking about this. I would love for the conferences and calendar to be linked because we like to set up recurring meetings that require video. It would be great to be able to schedule the BBB meeting right in the calendar and have the students click into the meeting from the calendar invite in addition to finding it in the conferences page. Thank you for your consideration, @Stefanie !
