Please note that this release is for testing purposes only.

Just yesterday Blindside Networks released it’s integration module for both Moodle 1.9 and Moodle 2.0.  The beta integration is for the synchronous webinar tool for which they both created and provide commercial support: BigBlueButton.

This is a timely release in the wake of the recent acquisition of Wimba/Elluminate and the close sourcing of DimDim webinar tools which all had/have Moodle integrations.

There’s an excellent demo video which highlights the easy install, setup and use [http://blindsidenetworks.com/video/moodle20/index.html].  Once installed the module creates a simple portal to BigBlueButton from Moodle, connecting students and teachers in one click to their live synchronous sessions.
