Video Conference Solutions   

We are often asked to recommend video conference solutions that integrate well with Moodle.

Below are three solutions recommended by Pavel Gonzalez, Network Technician for eClass4learning.
  • Big Blue Button- Big Blue button is free. However, Big Blue Button needs to be hosted somewhere. It requires a
    lot of memory to run and takes a lot of disk space so we recommend running it on a separate
    server than your Moodle server. BigBluebutton can be fully integrated with versions Moodle
    2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.3. 
  • Adobe Connect- Adobe Connect is a hosted solution and can integrate with Moodle. However, single sign on will only work when you have On-Premise. There is an Adobe Connect Module. The module allows users to create Adobe Connect Pro meetings by adding an activity instance and providing the meeting name, url (optional), start time, end time, meeting template and a public or private meeting setting. There is also support for Moodle groups so that users who are only a part of a group can join meetings that are only for their Moodle group. 
  • Blackboard Collaborate (formally Elluminate)-This is a very good Web conferencing system that is fully integrated with Moodle. The company provides you a plug-in that integrates with Moodle. The vClass has 5 GB of recording storage and also gives you Plan and Publish licenses as well. 
Flipped Learning Packages
 eClass4learning and InfoCor have teamed up to provide everything you need to flip your classroom. 
Packages include:
  • Revolabs xTag™ USB Wireless Microphone- Each teacher will receive their own wireless mic system, providing the freedom to capture audio in a video recording anywhere in the classroom. The complete xTag USB system includes a wearable xTag wireless microphone, charger base, earpiece with volume control, and a quick-release lanyard so it can be conveniently worn around the neck.  
  • One Year Subscription to an EduVision Channel- Receive a one year subscription to your own secure video hosting channel.

  • Moodle Course (includes API): Each teacher receives their own Moodle hosted course to surround your videos with assessments, learning assignments and reflective activities to engage your students and aid their understanding. *Includes api that connects your EduVision channel to your Moodle Course.

  • One Day of Professional Development- One day of hands-on professional development in which you will make a flipped lesson for your classroom. Following the day, you will have access to our Flipped Learning Community with resources and FAQ's answered by our staff.
