Distant Education System

The Challenge

Our customer requests a web-based distance education system. The main purpose of the project is to provide functionality for users (students) to take part in educational process remotely. For obvious reasons, this system will need to be both flexible and reliable for it to be of any use.

Solution Overview

After a detailed discussion of exactly what our client wants, and carefully outlining their main goals, Softage develops a system according to customer’s requirements. The system is complex, and consists of encoding, storing, and streaming segments.

Once the system is active, the student users can watch the real-time teaching (audio and video) anywhere, any time, through a public website. Administrators can control the creation, storing, distributing and publishing of educational materials on the server side of the operation.

The system can be widely used in schools and universities to enhance education process.
