BigBlueButton, the most popular open source web conferencing system for online learning, has been updated to a new version 1.0 with improved features.
In a recent announcement on the BigBlueButton project blog, the BBN team announced the release of the new stable version after testing the beta version for more than 6 months.
The major changes in the new version of BBN are:
- New Polling,
- Improved Video Dock
In addition to the above features, this new release saw significant advancements in stability, usability, accessibility, leaning management systems (LMS) integration, and design wins.
BBN uses WebRTC for very high quality audio and this new version detects the loss of Internet connection (which can occur on a wireless network) and automatically attempts to reconnect the client and audio.
