This resource provides a Basic introduction to Canvas Conferences (AKA Big Blue Button) with step-by-step guidance on setting up a Conference meeting and signposting to further support material on the use of Big Blue Button itself. The platform provides a great way to stay in contact with your students individually or in groups. Particularly in this time of isolation, Conferences allows for engagement between peers in a way which is embedded within their wider virtual learning environment. However, it is only suitable for informal communication where no permanent recording is required. It should be noted that some students may be more familiar with Zoom or Teams, and that the latter is also integrated into Canvas.
