Would love to hear people's recent experiences with using the Conferences tool (aka Big Blue Button), especially anyone in Australia. When we tested it two years ago we had a lot of issues (constant dropping out etc) but we have been told the company has made changes and it is now working well. Do you use it? Have you used it with large groups of student all joining from off-campus? Can students join smoothly via mobile phone Canvas app? Do you have the paid version or the free version and what are the pros/cons there?

 

Anyone using anything else for synchronous classes in Canvas and how is that going?
