In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, online education has become the need of the hour. Keeping this in mind and problems that students are facing while using online classrooms, an Indian company has emerged to promote a secure ultralight online Learning Management Software with Live Virtual Classrooms to thousands of educational institutions.

Vu2Learn offers everything that is mission-critical for the academic fraternity from the perspective of online education delivery such as Live Classroom, White Board, Screen Sharing, Registration Control, Multiple device access, Distributed instructor and student base, Course calendars, Recorded class sessions, Tutorial Videos as VOD, Assessment, and Testing, Grading and Scoring for the overall management of an Institution/University. The Vu2Learn platform has been designed to be ultra-light on bandwidth for the Indian environment using state of the art WebRTC and peer to peer network distribution technologies and allows students access to the platform through mobile phones or laptops with less than 1 Mbps bandwidth, without having to download any bandwidth-hungry user app.
Amid the concerns of security and intrusion of hackers world over while using some of the popular web/mobile-based apps Vu2Learn is highly secure through its robust architecture. Vu2Learn live classes use TLS v1.2 Certificate and 2048bit RSA Key with SHA-256 Signature Algorithm. Besides, the use of industry-neutral and technologies like LDAP, SAML2, and SAT Authentication are also available for institutions.
The company undertook a pilot with over 50 top ranking public and private universities, colleges, and schools in India. Many of them are currently running trials and are customizing for their specific requirements. With online delivery of education becoming new normal in the post-Covid world, Vu2Learn hopes to reach out to the global frontiers as well.

Using this on standard laptops, desktop machines, mobile phones, and tablets along with optional use of digital pens making Vu2Learn the most practical solution today.

In the days to come, Vu2Vu India will introduce more cutting-edge technologies for the EdTech sector apart from addressing the telemedicine sector in India and abroad,” adds Shah.
