- Conferences within Canvas allow you…to present and communicate with students…outside of the classroom.…The most common use for conferences include…virtual lectures, virtual office hours,…and group meetings.…The concept of conferences is similar to…a Skype call or Google Hangout,…and the audio and video can be shared in realtime.…Other creative uses for this function…include bringing live experts into the classroom…through live feed, collaborating with educators…for professional development, or even troubleshooting…technology issues through screencasting.…Canvas uses Big Blue Button which is a third party group…to conduct these conferences.…
At the time of this taping conferences allow…up to 50 participants to participate at a time.…Within the conferences feature you do have the option…to record these conferences which we will see…in an upcoming video and this allows us to store the videos…for up to 14 days for others to watch.…Conferences provide an amazing opportunity…for communication and collaboration within your course.…
