Virtual Classroom for WordPress is our premium plugin to turn your WordPress site into an interactive Virtual Classroom using the open-source video conferencing software BigBlueButton. BBB requires a hosting server that can be connected to our plugin. The majority of BBB hosting solutions charge a hefty monthly amount that can be very inconvenient if you have low monthly usage with fewer meeting hours.
We have partnered with BigBlueButton.host which is a reliable BBB hosting to offer a cost-effective & reliable solution.
Their BBBHost.Cloud offers a pay-per-usage model and fixed hourly pricing. The small plan for up to 60 users will only cost you $1.25/per hour.
BigBlueButton is an open-source web conferencing system that can be hosted and installed on your server, you can follow this guide for the setup. You can set up this software on your server and enter the Endpoint and Secret credentials in the plugin to connect it to your server. Our partnering hosting company BigBlueButton.host also provides a one-time self-hosting setup on your server.
However, we emphasize opting for a managed BigBlueButton hosting service so they can look after the technical issues that pop up from time to time, and give you a hassle-free experience.
The monthly pricing packages are suitable for you if the no.of online meeting hours each month is significant and you have extensive usage. In that case, please review our recommended hosting providers list.
