Tutorials for session hosts

The BigBlueButton site has some video tutorials to get you started. Also as a session host. This page.

For the Cities for Change programme I recorded a specific tutorial, going through the “ten things a session host should know” about running online conferences at meet.coop. See here the page, and here the paginated video.

The tutorial introduces these 10 points:

  1. About this service
  2. Roles
  3. Access to a room
  4. Layout of a room
  5. Keeping order
  6. Streaming bot
  7. Recording
  8. Save session content!
  9. Breakouts
  10. Whiteboard


I’m sure this can be improved, but hopefully it can be of good use! And feel free to add your tutorials to this thread as well.

For the Amsterdam City’s Cities for Change programme we deployed an experimental streaming service, to stream the conference rooms through vimeo to the Cities for Change website, or any other website for that matter.

I recorded a little tutorial to explain the basic steps to set up the streaming pipeline for that.

Let it be noted that this - extending BBB with live streaming capacity - isn’t yet a standard service we offer, but if you are interested, let us know and we can see how to deploy it for your events.
