When integrating BigBlueButton into a course it can be decided whether a scheduled online meeting can be started by the moderator only or also by participants. If this option is activated participants will not be able to enter the meeting until the moderator has started it.
|Configuration in the course for coaches|
In the course, tutors can create new events in the BigBlueButton module in the event administration via "Add online event".
The following variants for creating online-meeting are distinguished:
The variants only differ in the creation of the dates. Separate online-meetings/reservations are created, which can then be edited separately.
Configuration of an online-meeting

For recurring online-meetings, the online-meetings can be edited/deleted or supplemented with free data in the second process step "Date" before creation.
If the course calendar is activated, the recorded online dates are also available as appointments and can be subscribed to by participants in their personal calendar.
