Ease
Simplicity is one of the core principles of our service. From my experience, many LMS(Learning Management System) and online education, in general, face useability issues, an issue so serious that users have to be trained to interact with the system like that. We believe that simplifying all interactions is the way to useful and effective work with the website or mobile app. And we strive for this simplicity. In order, not to be unfounded, here are our principles of users' interface design.
  1. Simplification of the interface by means of concealment of everything superfluous and possibly distracting from the completion of the task.
  2. All input forms are simplified to the limit. We seek to force you to enter only the data needed at the moment.
  3. Division of complex operations into more simple chains.
  4. Teamwork on shared goals in order to split complex interactions between multiple users and simultaneously share knowledge and skills between them.
  5. Hints everywhere you might face difficulties.
  6. Built-in on every page of our website chat with the service staff will help you solve any issue you might face.
qooiz.meis genuinely a simple and convenient service for the creation and management of your online education centre. You just simply do it. You do not need to have any special skills, it is enough to be a confident computer user.
Manufacturability

Just imagine! While walking around the Hermitage Museum, you can get comprehensive information through text, audio or video about all the exhibits that are put on display as augmented reality by simply pointing the camera of your smartphone or tablet at the item of your interest.
Or for example, one can take a virtual tour around New York and learn the history of every building downtown with the help of a complete immersion through virtual reality technologies. There is no need to fly to New York, one can be anywhere in the world, but receive the feeling of real presence there.
We can observe the experiments happening in the Large Hadron Collider in real-time on video, and then discuss what we saw with the professor of quantum physics or participate in the video seminar with other classmates. All of this is amazing!

When I was a student it was impossible, which is probably why it was pretty boring to study.

I think some people might doubt that online education can replace a very important component of studying - a face-to-face examination. It seems that students can cheat during the exam or fake the results of it if a teacher does not observe student with his own eyes.
How about a live video from the student's webcam during the exam? This is even better than observing students in the classroom when you can not keep track of everyone's actions. However, with the video recording, you can later rewatch every student separately.
You can even control the fact of switching to a new browser tab different from the test or exam, as well as capturing student's gaze during the exam period.
This is all possible now with the help of modern tools of online education.

There is also an assumption that test results can be falsified... There are no absolutely safe systems, but we used all possible approaches to make the hacking of the system extremely unlikely, everything is safe with us.

Security

Let's take a look at 2 aspects: our signature technology of access permission Scaleplan Access® and our steps to protect the system from hacking.

Scaleplan Access® implements selective access control, when each pair of a user and system object should be given a distinct and unambiguous enumeration or permissible operations (read, edit and etc.). However, to provide simplicity, we have provided it with the elements of mandatory access control in the form of predefined roles such as "Admin", "Teacher", "Student" and etc.
Basically, when you start working with your education centre you have a set of roles, and when you connect users to your centre you can add them to a defined role or set all the rights for them manually. Predefined roles are just sets of rights by default, you are entitled to delete, edit them or create new. You can make a user a student and then expand his/her rights or remove access, available by default, to any object, without affecting the rights of other users. Everything is very flexible.

Now, this is what we have done and continue to do to prevent hacking of our system of distance learning:

  1. Traffic encryption between server and client (use of HTTPS protocol). Today this is almost the standard for data transferring that helps to prevent attacks like "Man in the Middle".
  2. An intrusion detection system is installed on all the nodes in our cluster, which controls the traffic going into our server, so we can detect hacking attempts and virus-infected files. The system automatically adopts protective measures and passes a danger signal to developers.
  3. We update operating systems of our servers and software in a timely manner, covering known vulnerabilities.
  4. We regularly check all nodes of our network with vulnerability scanners in order to detect security issues as soon as possible and fix them.
The perpetual war between hackers with virus writers and the protection of systems does not stop for a minute, but we try our best to stay ahead of the progress in methods of countering attacks.

Versatility

We understand flexibility as a necessary feature when striving for the simplicity of services. We strive to maximize the possibility of customization of your learning centre in order to eliminate all irrelevant and distracting functionality and make the organization of online education as suitable as possible for those who teach and convenient for those who study.

The hierarchy of the learning process in your education centre may vary: you can create a specific material or survey and make it available for the whole world or only for some individual, or you can create a complex structure in the form of “Training Center Training Program Modules Topics Lessons” with each level containing as many educational materials and knowledge tests as you want.

For instance, some ICE(Institute for Continuing Education) may present the studying program, "Introduction to Quantum Physics", as a hierarchy that consits of “Program Topics Lessons”, the list of topics can be as follows: “Corpuscular and wave properties of electromagnetic waves”, “Discreteness of nuclear states. Atomic spectra ”,“ Wave properties of particles ”,“ Elements of quantum mechanics ”, etc. In doing so, each topic will be devoted 4 hours of self-studying with materials provided for the topic, and at the end of each topic, our students will have to take a test.

Statistics

Correct statistics is a way to understand what is happening in your education centre. We aim to collect as much data about the actions of users of your education centre as possible and see how these actions affect the learning outcomes.

And here, as usual, one can not do without advanced technology.

Our studying portal stores a lot of related information about the learning process. At the moment, analytical service is in the process of internal testing and development. But as soon as it is ready our clients will be able to take advantage of all its capabilities!

Communication

Here we will talk about webinars and video conference calls.

Webinars are our everything. It is hard to imagine modern e-learning without webinars, and indeed webinar is a modern interpretation of the good old lectures, aimed at the online environment. Judge for yourself, when you sit in the cafe, for example, you can watch and listen to a lecture about project management and at the same time, you can participate in the discussion through chat or video (video conference). An additional advantage is the possibility to record the lecture and rewatch it later. Even if you have skipped the lecture, you did not miss anything because you can watch it later, when you have more time for it or if you did not understand something, there is no problem with that, because you can rewatch the lecture. If you want to ask the teacher an additional question there is no need to write down that part of the lecture, you can simply show the clip from your lecture recording.

In my opinion, this is all very convenient.

Our system of distance learning keeps up to date with the opportunity to conduct webinars (video lectures) and video conferences withing the virtual learning centre.
