Reviews (Snippets from G2)

Pros

  • Very beautiful GUI and Video conference platform for my company. Video recording, whiteboard and private chat is very nice tool.
  • BigBlueButton is a web-based application for visual communication and all of its features work perfectly for increasing meeting productivity. It delivers high quality for sound and video and make our visual communication easier for us.
  • The product works great across various computer platforms and we use this in a blended class environment with both in-class and online learners.
  • I like the feel and how user friendly it is. I like the themes and colors, and the ability to personalise some features.

Cons

  • The user interface not as simple as compare to other trending applications for communication. It doesn't perform well on the slow bandwidth of the internet. Customer service doesn't respond fast to solve our facing issues, so it needs more updates for serving big companies.
  • Sometimes the voice of the participants or the teacher can be lost. It comes back when you refresh the page.
  • Audio does sometimes have hiccups, usually when multiple people are talking at once.
  • Sometimes the audio sounds weird, making it difficult to hear people.
