BigBlueButton was born out of the Technology Innovation Management (TIM) program at Carleton University’s Institute for Technology Entrepreneurship and Commercialization in Ottawa, Canada, and was launched externally in 2007.
BigBlueButton is completely open-source and was created by a community of dedicated developers passionate about helping improve online learning. It is constantly evolving and improving through a dedicated, growing international user and developer community.
To date, there have been more than a dozen releases of the core product, and each new release has seen the development of new features, testing and documentation as well as improved community support.
Our focus is singular: support teaching with improved, on-line tools that allow teachers to connect with students in ways that are synchronized, collaborative and fun.
