Install the BigBlueButtonBn and RecordingBn plugins

Follow these steps:

  • Download the latest BigBlueButtonBn and RecordingsBn versions and unzip them:

      $ wget https://
      $ unzip
      $ wget https://
      $ unzip
  • Run the following commands to copy the required folders to the Moodle(TM) LMS modules directory:

      $ cp -R bigbluebuttonbn/ /opt/bitnami/moodle/mod/
      $ cp -R recordingsbn/ /opt/bitnami/moodle/mod/
  • Login to your Moodle(TM) LMS site as administrator. Moodle LMS will detect the new modules and prompt you to “Upgrade”.

  • Click the “Upgrade Moodle database now” button. The activity module will install mod_bigbluebuttonbn and mod_recordingsbn.

  • Click the “Continue” button. You’ll be prompted to configure the activity module.

  • Enter the URL and salt (security key) to your BigBlueButton server (or use the default values for testing).

  • Click the “Save Changes” button.

At this point, enter any course, turn editing on, and add a BigBlueButtonBN activity link to the class.
