BigBlueButton - Canvas Skip to main content


BigBlueButton is an open source web conferencing system for online learning. The LTI integration enables teachers to:

  • Embed BigBlueButton virtual classes within their course to provide online office hours, small group collaboration, and online lectures
  • Record sessions
  • Manage recorded sessions

With our hosted premium solution, recordings of your online sessions remain in your online course. Canvas documentation mentions a 14-day period where recordings remain available.  This does not apply to Rutgers Canvas.

Rutgers Instructors may download instructions for how to use BigBlueButton by importing a BigBlueButton Set-up Module and Documentation into your course from Rutgers Canvas Commons.
