BigBlueButton

BigBlueButton is an open source web conferencing system for online learning. BigBlueButton's web conferencing platform enables educational institutions to deliver their courses online, with high quality slides, voice, and video collaboration at a fraction of the cost.

It can record and playback sessions (slides, audio, and chat), is cross-platform, running on Mac, Unix/Linux, and PC computers, and is supported by a community of developers.

BigBlueButton is built using over fifteen open source projects including Flex SDK, Gralis, Ghostscript, ActiveMQ, Red5, Redis, FreeSWITCH, SWFTools and many others.
