https://videoconf.ist.ac.at is our on-premise installation of BBB (BigBlueButton).
Login and create/share a room
If you just want to attend an already created conference, you do not need to login, just click in the link you got!
Just visit https://videoconf.ist.ac.at/ with your favorite browser. We suggest using Firefox, but Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge will work as well. Older browsers like Internet Explorer are not supported.
Just sign in by clicking the “Sign in” button on login with your ISTusername/ISTpassword.
Note: IST SSO is not yet supported on this system.
After your login, you are presented with the following window:
The black boxes will contain the personalized information, like your name on the right top of the page, and the link of your “Home Room”. To start a meeting, just share the link presented to you with all participants, and press “Start”.

You can always cancel this procedure (“X” on the right top of the window) and restart it by selecting the “head-phone” icon at the bottom of your screen:
