How to attend a Meeting (BigBlueButton) in Sakai

  • What is a Meeting? Is it a web conference? Yes.
  • Do I have to use a laptop or PC/Mac?
    • No, Meetings will now work on a desktop, Chromebook, and mobile clients: Chrome on Andriod (6.0+) and Safari Mobile on iPhone/iPad (iOS 11+).
  • I'm new to web conferencing, is there a handout or a video on how to attend a meeting and set up my audio?
  • Do I have to have a headset?
    • Ask your instructor-if allowed, you can use "Listen" mode, and type in the Chat box instead.
  • Do I have to have a webcam?
    • Ask your instructor-usually you will not need a webcam.
