How to use conferences in Canvas (using BigBlueButton)- Parents
Canvas has a built-in web-conferencing tool called "Conferences" that can be used for virtual lectures, virtual office hours, or anything else that would need synchronous interaction. Conferences utilize an integration with BigBlueButton and allow up to 100 concurrent users at a time.
We recommend using Firefox or Chrome with Conferences and do not recommend using Safari as it does not support screen sharing at this time.
When would I use Conferences as a Parent?
Parents may use Conferences to:
- Participate in online classes with your son during school closures (Lower School)
- Virtual conferences with teachers
