The goal of the project is to increase the information security of educational and administrative processes by replacing the current Zoom solution, which has undergone Zoom-bombing attacks during the coronavirus, with a new secure platform for video training.
Reducing Security Risks: Moving from Zoom to BigBlueButton
Creation of their own system for video learning of students in study groups of up to 100 people on the basis of the BigBlueButton platform, operated on their own AWS virtual servers.
Full adaptation of the BigBlueButton platform to the internal educational processes of the college.
Removing barriers to start using the online platform - BigBlueButton works through any popular browser.
Creation of a system for video recording of online classes to improve the quality.
Before the start of the project, the supervisory board of the college formulated the following challenges:
Seamless integration of BigBlueButton platform with Canvas LMS e-Learning system and Jenzabar learning management system was provided.
The security of video training was ensured at the level of software technology, and server equipment, and procedures for managing video training were ensured.
All college teachers have the ability to create an unlimited number of online sessions of any length.
Convenient access to videos of online classes for teachers, students and administrative staff has been provided.
The project was implemented within two weeks, taking into account design and implementation. Implementation and integration were carried out completely remotely. The project team included an architect, programmer, systems engineer, and an instructor to train teachers.
Thanks to the effective organization of design work, the following results were achieved in a short time:
All audio and video connections between teachers and students are protected by end-to-end SSl encryption, guaranteeing reliable transmission and safety of classes.
