Improve Collaboration with the Big Blue Button

What is the Big Blue Button? It is a tool that MLC supplies to faculty members to facilitate face-to-face, real-time collaboration and contact in their classes. 

The Big Blue Button allows multiple users to video conference and share presentations and documents. Up to twenty people can log on at a time.

Build it into group-work, course introductions, or student presentations. To add the Big Blue Button into your course, just select it from the list of “activities” when editing your Moodle page. (Just remember to accommodate students in different time zones and those who don’t have a camera or mic.)
