BigBlueButton has been a huge contributor in the E-learning field for more than a decade now. BigBlueButton, the first open-source web conferencing system, is seen and witnessed all around the globe to be one of the most effective open-source web conferencing platforms available in terms of cyber-security and data privacy, to this day.
After releasing multiple alphas then betas updates, adding new features (emojis-raising hand-upload presentation etc..) and fixing bugs, this whole new update seems to be different from the previously released updates.
Do you want to find out how? By the end of this article, you will find everything that concerns BigBlueButton 2.3.0 update, closely pay attention to the following, here’s the new features in BigBlueButton:
Added stream sorting based on voice activity (voice switching, last N, paginated last N, call it what you want). Works with or without pagination enabled, transparently. Based on video floor heuristics from FS with configurable transition timers (based on a number of audio frames). BigBlueButton made video stream sorting extensible and configurable.
Accordingly, these are the new features in the new BigBlueButton update that will potentially improve UX in the open-source platform and improve its usability to its wide range of users.
