Click Video conference 

Here you can configure some settings only for this course 

All those configurations should be based on your real course situation. The original BigBlueButton plugin for chamilo has a default meeting duration limit is 300 minutes. if you don't configure it here, the meeting will be ended after 300 minutes. 

Also if you don't configure a user limit, then the MynaParrot Loadbalacer system will use 30 as default. In this case, maybe you can't open more rooms at the same time due to the capacity was overloaded.

 

Step6. Join a session 

 

After that configuration, it should work. If not or you need someone to help you set it up, please contact our support team, we will help you to set it up.
