How to Set Up a Canvas Conference

The Conferences tool in Canvas allows the instructor and students to communicate in real-time using video (via webcam), audio (via USB headset) and text (via the Chat pod). Conferences allows you to broadcast real-time audio, video, demo applications on your desktop, share presentation slides, or demo any online resources. Currently, Canvas integrates with BigBlueButton.

Note: BigBlueButton can accommodate approximately 50 users in a conference at one time.
