Topic Area: 
Open Source
We will share our experiences incorporating webRTC audio, an HTML5 client, and a mobile client (Android and iOS) into BigBlueButton.
Presentation Description: 
BigBlueButton is an open source web conferencing system for on-line learning. We believe that every student with a web browser should have access to a high-quality on-line learning experience. Working closely with Seneca College, the core members of the team have been extending the project to support webRTC audio (higher quality, lower latency audio), HTML5 client (migrating the client from a Flash-based architecture to a pure HTML5-based architecture), and mobile client (Android and iOS). We'll share our experiences over the past 12 months and demonstrate the advances we've made to the FSOSS attendees.
