BigBlueButton is video chat software embedded in Moodle that some instructors may use to communicate with students.
What is the minimum bandwidth required to use BigBlueButton?
We recommend that you have at least 500 KB/sec upstream and 1 MB/sec download bandwidth. The upstream bandwidth is the amount of bandwidth your computer has available to transmit data to the BigBlueButton server. It also depends on your activity; if you are not broadcasting through a webcam, your upstream bandwidth requirements are far less. A good way to check your bandwidth is at speedtest.net. Your actual bandwidth may be less than your ISP claims, which can be a result of ISP throttling
How do I get the best audio in BigBlueButton?
