hey, i'm new to all of this and wondering if I need to do anything to set up BigBlue Button?

On the setting up page it has

The only key other technical component is setting up to use BigBlueButton.

But there are no instructions on what to do to set up??

Also, will it work on a Mac?

Thanks

Hello Libby,

Great to have you here!  BBB will work on Mac, but works best when using Firefox (it can have some personality issues with Chrome).

There will be a training session on using BBB tomorrow (check the Presenter announcements for details here: http://2013.imoot.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=551 )

In terms of setup, do make sure your presentation files are loaded as soon as you can, and do go and practice in the test rooms.  You can find more information here: http://2013.imoot.org/course/view.php?id=9

I'm online tonight for another hour or so as I write this, and can help you out with testing tomorrow night if it helps put your mind at ease - feel free to send me a message on the site!

All the best,

Lindy

Hi Libby,

Sorry, had my presenters hat on!  For attendees, if you're worried about whether you can access BBB, there's a link to a test room here: http://2013.imoot.org/course/view.php?id=5

If you need a buddy to test it out with, send me a message on the site directly, I'm happy to join you and make sure you can hear/see everything!

Happy mootin!

Lindy

Tried the test room and it all worked beautifully (I used a Mac as well). So no apparent problems unless bandwidth becomes an issue.
