[ BigBlueButton] is a free and open source web conferencing system, primarily targeted towards online lecturing by providing a virtual classroom environment, and tools for small group collaboration. However, BigBlueButton is by no means limited to classroom settings and small groups; it just means that the core features and components of BigBlueButton were developed with this target demographic in mind. The BigBlueButton name comes from the notion that starting a web conference should be as simple as pressing a metaphorical big blue button.
===Who Develops BigBlueButton?===
BigBlueButton was started in 2007 by Richard Alam, who at the time was a Master's student at Carleton University. Since then, many other individuals and organizations have become involved. The core team of developers come from [ Blindside Networks], [ Seneca CDOT], and [http:// Mconf].
