Blindside Networks started the BigBlueButton project in 2008 with one goal: to provide remote students a high-quality online learning experience.
BigBlueButton is an open source web conferencing system for online learning. It enables teachers to engage remote students with real-time sharing of audio, video, presentation, chat, desktop, and polls. BigBlueButton has deep integrations with Sakai via the Sakai Meetings Tool.
Blindside Networks provides commercial hosting and support for BigBlueButton to the Apereo community.
