You are currently viewing Integrate BigBlueButton with OpenEdx

If you are using Open edx (referred hereafter as simply “edX”) , it includes a Free Tier BigBlueButton service provided by Blindside Networks.

The Free Tier service has the following restrictions:

  1. The maximum length for each session is 60 minutes
  2. The maximum number of concurrent users per session is 25
  3. Recordings expire after seven (7) days and are not downloadable
  4. Student webcams are only visible to the moderator

To remove these limitations you need to have your own BigBlueButton Infrastructure. We provide self-hosted-like flexibility and fully managed hosting for BigBlueButton, you may explore our plan according to your current needs.

Once you subscribe to a Plan you will receive the BigBlueButton LTI Credentials required for the edX integration with BigBlueButton.

Contact Us for any assistance required for the Integration after you have obtained the required credentials.
