You can't add it as a LO. You would need a lot of development.
If you want to contribute to the development of a plugin to achieve this, contact me with a private message.

BigBlueButton is an open source webconference tool: you can install it separately and integrate it with forma.lms. Integration is natively included. In this case, integration means single sign on between the 2 tools and possibility to create and manage meeting rooms from within forma.
Adobe Connect is a commercial tool, you just need to buy their service. If you want to integrate it with Forma, we have a commercial plugin that does exactly that. In this case, integration means not only the same things I described for BBB but also the fact that the meeting report (who participated, when, for how much time...) available in Connect is automatically available in forma. Also, you can send notifications and invites for Connect meetings directly from Forma.

How is integration with Big Blue Button natively included? If I wanted to test BBB on a test server, what should I do to run it? I don't find any option regarding BBB on Forma.
Thank you

There is a BBB plugin in Forma 2, you find it under administration>configuration>plugin
That being said, you still need a working BBB installation to connect with Forma.

I've found the plugin. I didn't find it because previously I deleted lots of plugins from plugin page by mistake, and now I recovered it from the folder I downloaded.
Now I've created a room for testing at demo.bigbluebutton.org.
What should I insert into the settings of the BBB plugin?
And when you say that I need a working BBB installation to connect with Forma, you mean in my PC which is currently locally hosting the website or the test server available at demo.bigbluebutton.org is ok?

First: install the BBB plugin from the plugin list
Then: click on activate
Then: click on "settings"
From there you will find all the parameters you need to set => you will find them in your BBB installation or in your BBB account
I was talking about an BBB installation somewhere: on a server installed by you, for example, but even on a cloud hosting site.

Sorry if I keep asking questions about that.
I understood that BBB has a test server at http://test-install.blindsidenetworks.c ... luebutton/ whose salt is 8cd8ef52e8e101574e400365b55e11a6
In configuration of the plugin I put these two parameters, port 80, but I don't know what to set in the other parameters.
Anyway, what is supposed to happen as soon as I set the parameters correctly? How can I create a test conference through forma?

Hi
I don't know if that test server is still active. The information is there as an example, you should put the real parameters of your BBB account.
After the integration is ok, what is supposed to happen is that you can run a meeting directly from Forma. Just add the "videoconference" item to the menus of your courses and you'll be able to create e start a meeting from inside a course.
Or you can turn the "videoconference" TAB on, and you'll be able to start a meeting from there, too.
But first of all you need a working BBB environment, where you can set all the parameters you will use in Forma. I am not sure that demo.bigbluebutton.org allows that.
