From Greenlight version 2.7.1 (online since 08/10/20), the room URLs change when virtual rooms are set up. At newly created rooms For security reasons, additional characters are added at the end of the room address.


  • old: bbb.hszg.de/b/vor-abc-def
  • new: bbb.hszg.de/b/vor-abc-def-ghi

Important: Existing rooms remain unaffected! I.e. you need the links to the rooms NOT adapt and the participants too NOT send again. The new function only takes effect when new rooms are created.


3) Presentation slides
Up to now, a standard background slide was automatically loaded in BigBlueButton, but organizers could upload their own slides / presentations. When the conference ended, however, these own slides were automatically reset to the standard slide.

To do this, call up the room options in your personal start area and select "Add presentation". Note: only one presentation file can be stored at a time.
