BigBlueButton - Accessing a conference without a canvas userId

Jump to solution

Hi Canvas Community 😃 

How are you all? 

I'm starting using Bbb and i have a doubt that i'm not finding if it's possible to achieve. 

On other collaborate software, i could invite any user, enrolled student or not, to join a conference (sending the URL). The same behaviour is possible on Bbb?? If yes, how can i achieve it? I tried paste the url from a conference but did not worked. 

Have a nice day. 

Regards,
Alexandre S.

Hi  Alexandre,

I'm the product manager for BigBlueButton, which is the virtual classroom for Canvas Conferences.  While I work at Blindside Networks and can't speak directly for Instructure, I can answer your question.

This capability isn't available in the default version of Canvas Conferences, but it is available if your school upgraded to the Premium Tier version (which also offers permanent recordings).

If your interested in finding out more information on upgrading, just reach out to your Canvas Rep.  They can provide you all the details.

Regards,... Fred
