How do I create a long-running Conference?

Long-running conferences can be used in multiple ways. You can use conferences as a place for users to interact with other users, or you can show your presentation slides to the class and speak with them at the same time.

Note: A conference will remain active on Big Blue Button as long as one person is part of the conference room. When the last person leaves, the conference will conclude and all files and chats will be removed.
