We are pleased to announce the release of BigBlueButton 0.9.0, our twelfth release to date.  BigBlueButton is an open source web conferencing system for on-line learning.

Major features of this release include:

  - Improved audio using web real-time communication (WebRTC) support in FireFox and Chrome web browsers
  - Instructors can now choose which segments of the session are recorded using the Start/Stop Record button
  - Users now test their microphone before joining the audio bridge and have a new Listen Only mode

We believe every student with a web browser should have access to a high-quality on-line learning experience.  This release is a significant step towards that goal.

“We at National University College-Online Division are very happy with our change to BigBlueButton. With our previous solution we had over 50 support tickets/month. After switching to BigBlueButton, that number dropped to 6 or 7 tickets/month. With our previous solution we used to get tickets from both students and faculty. But now with BigBlueButton we are only receiving tickets from faculty which demonstrates how user friendly this solution can be for students.” says Mariangie del Valle, Senior Director, Information Technology, National University College-Online.

You’ll find detailed information on this release — including detailed overview, installation instructions, configuration, development instructions, and a frequently asked questions (FAQ) at our new documentation web site

For short tutorial videos on using BigBlueButton see

The BigBlueButton client is localized in over 30 languages.  This localization effort is done entirely by our community.

We look forward to seeing educational institutions, commercial companies, and the BigBlueButton community at-large build upon this new release to delivery a high-quality on-line learning experience to remote students
