Since the initial integration of BigBlueButton (BBB) into Tiki (first introduced in Tiki 5.0), the Tiki and BBB communities have become strategic partners. Each release of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware has featured tighter integration, and the Tiki Community extensively dogfoods BBB at each TikiFest.
In this video, Marc Laporte, a member of the Tiki Community and Fred Dixon of Blindside Networks discuss the integration of BigBlueButton within the Tiki infrastructure. Blindside Networks is dedicated to helping universities, colleges, and commercial companies deliver a high-quality learning experience to remote students.
In March 2011, the two communities will hold a joint development session to further improve integration. This will be the second TikiFest to focus on BigBlueButton. See http://tiki.org/TikiFestBigBlueButton2 for details.
