CIArb introduces BigBlueButton for virtual learning and assessment

09 Apr 2020

The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) is happy to announce that, after moving all of its assessments online, it has now integrated the popular virtual classroom software, BigBlueButton, into its virtual learning environment. 

BigBlueButton is a web-based platform that enables tutors and candidates to connect remotely via video and use a wide range of tools such as screen share, videos, polls and break out rooms to facilitate learning and teaching. 

Several of CIArb’s membership courses in dispute avoidance and resolution, including international arbitration and construction adjudication, will be delivered using BigBlueButton whilst COVID-19 measures continue, and they add to CIArb’s existing online provision including an audiobook and E-modules. 

Dr Paresh Kathrani, Director of Professional Services, said: ‘We are happy to be able to provide the services that our students need to undertake their training and assessments from their own home. BigBlueButton is an excellent platform that allows our students and tutors to connect by video and also use features like PowerPoint presentations and break out rooms”.

Please contact Andrea Khan, Online Learning Lead, at AKhan@ciarb.org for further information on CIArb’s online training and assessments.
