Support a vibrant cooperatively managed community platform.

What is CommunityBridge?

CommunityBridge is a video conferencing platform that utilizes the powerful BigBlueButton (BBB) technology. As a member of CommunityBridge, you are assigned a dedicated room for video conferencing, which can be accessed through a persistent URL (link) that is easy to remember. Unlike other platforms, the URL remains consistent unless you decide to change it. The best part is that there is no need to install any software. BBB seamlessly operates within a browser on most devices, ensuring convenience and accessibility for everyone.
