Big Blue Button Virtual Backgrounds

0 Kudos


We're trying to encourage students to turn on webcams during BBB conferences but some are reluctant and have suggested that some may not want to reveal their backgrounds at home. Could CANVAS contact BBB to suggest "virtual backgrounds" functionality be added to the package?

Many thanks

Thanks for sharing this idea. As it moves forward as a request for an enhancement to Big Blue Button functionality, here's the direct guidance on the topic from BBB: How do I change my webcam background — Blindside Networks Customer Support Portal

Thanks Stefanie, I'll give it a go. I just need to get our IT department to permit a download.

Kind regards
