Introducing BigMarker (www.bigmarker.com), the platform for learning and sharing through web conferences, announced today that its users can now host free web conferences with up to 100 participants — including up to 9 sharing webcams at a time — with no downloads or plugins required. This major update is a follow-on to the introduction of the world’s first full-featured WebRTC conferencing platform, which the company released in a limited Beta last month.
This update brings new features, including recording and playback of screen sharing and videos shared in webinars and video conferences, as well as uploading of recorded content to YouTube. But the greatest improvements come in the form of scale, as the ability to host interactive webinars and online events of this size, without downloading software, is uncharted territory for the industry.
“We could not be more excited to be developing the latest technology for teaching, learning, and sharing with others in real-time,” said Zhu-Song Mei, BigMarker’s Founder and CEO. “We’ve made steady progress, and we’re happy to be the first company to offer interactive web conferencing at this scale in a browser, without Flash or some other installation requirement. As our team continues to push the limits of what computers can do, we look forward to seeing BigMarker users push the boundaries of connecting more and more like-minded people from around the world.”
What is BigMarker’s take on web conferencing? BigMarker sees the power of people coming together in a live setting to learn from experts, discuss interests, and share knowledge with peers. Its goal is to make sharing and learning online more personal by digitizing what people have been doing at in-person conferences for decades.

BigMarker is the platform for learning and sharing through web conferences. Founded in 2010, it was born from the idea that web conferencing could help people anywhere learn and build relationships with peers. So it set off to create a destination for virtual meet-ups around common interests. Since then, BigMarker has evolved into a full-featured platform surrounded by a growing community of over 5,000 groups and people from 190 countries. The platform provides unlimited web conferencing with audio, video, screen sharing, and recording, the ability to sell tickets, and community features to engage and build an audience between events. It offers the most generous free plan in the industry, with premium options available. BigMarker’s mission is to make it easier to share knowledge and experience with others.
