Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise has launched Rainbow Classroom, a unique cloud-based virtual classroom engine enriched with real-time collaboration and communication tools.
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, secure collaboration tools such as monitored study groups, whiteboarding, audio, video, IM functionality, as well as file and screen sharing.
Rainbow Classroom also enables the curation of all classroom activity through its ability to retain all documents, conversations and posts until the term is complete. It seamlessly integrates with existing Learning Management Systems (LMS) to enable a familiar virtual learning environment and toolset.
Moreover, Rainbow Classroom is 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 will enjoy the robust level of security applied to all Rainbow products, where communications are encrypted in transit and at rest.
“Home learning is a trend that is here to stay,” said Moussa Zaghdoud, EVP, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Cloud Communication Business Division. “However, this change requires flexibility among learning establishments, and 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.
