Hi, That is really interesting.
What are the BBB dependencies (java, pyhton…?) What are the bandwidth 
needs? What about the disk space?
That could rapidly be an expensive platform.
Could also be used as fedora classroom.
Could we add external video in this platform? (In France, we have 
started to build a page providing video and its corresponding 
sideshow (still looking for hosting)).
There is an other project that has started, "video tutorials".
Please read the wiki page[1].
We should probably have only one platform for those needs.
I am  not sure that the infra will provide us a physical machine for
that, could we think about a VM and hosting facilities under
archives.org or other free online services?
Do BBB is able to record a talk in a temp folder, stream it, and then
send it to an hosted storage? (That should not be too difficult).
