We have set up this instance of BigBlueButton as a pilot for faculty, staff and students at TU Delft and elsewhere to use for online learning during the closure of the university due to measures to contain the COVID-19 Pandemic. Feel free to use it!
You can now change the presentation shown when a room starts. This is especially useful if users can start the room before you join!
To upload a new presentation, go to the room settings and upload one from your PC.
You can enable recordings for your rooms in their settings any time you want between sessions. If one of your rooms has the option to be recorded, consent from users will be collected before they join the session.
By default, rooms no longer enable recordings for privacy reasons.
In the webinterface, you now have three options for publishing recordings via a drop-down menu:
Private: This is the default setting. The recording exists, but you cannot access it via the Internet.
Unlisted: With this setting, you can access the recording (via the link behind 'Presentation'). Everyone with the link can watch the recording, until you set it back to private.
Public: With this setting, the recording will also be listed on the public start-page of your online meeting room. Convenient, if you want to make several lecture recordings publicly accessible to your students.
