New solution seamlessly creates an unparalleled virtual learning environment
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, a leading provider of communications, networking and cloud solutions tailored to customers’ industries, today announced the launch of Rainbow™ Classroom – a unique cloud-based virtual classroom engine enriched with real-time collaboration and communication tools.
Effective remote learning requires an intuitive, integrated and secure platform which can be tailored to educators’ specific needs. Rainbow Classroom enables teachers to empower their teaching styles, to meet their students’ needs, through the creation of an all-encompassing virtual learning environment. Teachers are able to encourage students’ academic and social engagement with a host of real-time and secure collaboration tools; such as monitored study groups, whiteboarding, audio, video, instant messaging (IM) functionality as well as file and screen sharing.
Rainbow Classroom also enables the curation of all classroom activities, through its ability to retain all documents, conversations and posts until the end of the term. Rainbow Classroom seamlessly integrates with existing Learning Management Systems (LMS), to enable a familiar virtual learning environment and toolset. Rainbow Classroom is also fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and approved by The Open Web Application Security Project® (OWASP). Because it is hosted on Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s infrastructure, it enjoys the robust level of security applied to all Rainbow products; all communications are encrypted in transit and at rest. With Rainbow Classroom, educators have an innovative solution to enable them to meet the ever-shifting needs of students – and empower their success.
“Home learning is a trend that is here to stay,” comments Moussa Zaghdoud, EVP, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Cloud Communication Business Division. “However, this change requires flexibility among learning establishments; we created Rainbow Classroom to meet that exact need. Rainbow Classroom can be tailored by a school or university to optimize the remote learning experience, while ensuring data security and ease of use for teachers and students alike.
Rainbow classroom’s inherent versatility enables it to be leveraged in any learning environment. By using Rainbow Classroom, a business, school or university can turn a simple web browser into a sophisticated and powerful learning tool. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is here to support both educators and students in the evolution to a hybrid digital learning environment”.
