Code review is a great way to reduce software defects at an early stage, mentor new developers, and improve collaboration. But, on the other hand, it is a burdensome and expensive procedure that requires a lot of specialists and may result in errors.Automated code analysis tools are a good alternative to tedious manual code debugging. They can help reduce the burden on developers, lower overall costs, speed up the software development life cycle by quickly identifying bugs and defects that can not be detected during traditional testing.

The pandemic moved education around the world online. Despite the wide variety of tools and technologies available, many educational institutions failed to organize distance learning quickly and effectively. The fact is that most cloud platforms are not designed for this purpose: they are hard to use and provide too many excessive features.Therefore, there is an urgent need for a system with an easy-to-understand interface that would make the interaction between cloud service providers and educators easier and more effective.

The times when a blackboard and a piece of chalk were enough for a lecture are long gone. With the advent of technology, teachers began to use first slide projectors and then multimedia presentations.However, today these tools are no longer effective enough. In the age of IT and increasing digitalization, lecturers often need to share the desktop with students in real time to make the learning process more engaging, keep an audience on the same page, improve communication and eliminate the need for students to download digital study material prior to or during lectures.

Challenge

The times when a blackboard and a piece of chalk were enough for a lecture are long gone. With the advent of technology, teachers began to use first slide projectors and then multimedia presentations.

However, today these tools are no longer effective enough. In the age of IT and increasing digitalization, lecturers often need to share the desktop with students in real time to make the learning process more engaging, keep an audience on the same page, improve communication and eliminate the need for students to download digital study material prior to or during lectures.

The urgency for a digital communication tool that would allow lecturers to share screens in real time, transfer photo and video learning materials hassle-free and manage presentations becomes absolutely clear, especially amid the global rise of e-learning fueled by COVID-19.

Solution

Softarex has developed Online Conferencing Software that allows users to share the content of their desktop to a wide auditorium. The system is suitable for both distance and in-class learning.

The system includes the following user interfaces:

  • A client desktop application for screen sharing;
  • A server desktop application for screen sharing management;
  • A web application for user and screen sharing management;
  • A client application that allows users to view the shared screen via the link in any browser.

The features of the client desktop application incude:

  • View presenter’s desktop — once a user gets the sharing link, they can insert it in the app and view the shared screen;
  • Remote control — depending on the sharing type, app users can not only share their screen but also provide remote control access to their desktop.

The server desktop application is designed for the lecturer and furnished with the following screen sharing management features:

  • Desktop sharing — presenters can share their desktop by simply generating the link and providing it to the viewers. Viewers just need to open the link in the client application or any browser to view the lecturer’s screen content by means of HTML 5 client.
  • Sharing mode — lecturers can select one of the screen sharing modes:

    • Desktop — sharing the entire desktop with the viewers;
    • Application — viewers can see only the area of the application;
    • Region — presenters can select a region of the screen to share.
  • Pause sharing — lecturers can pause presentations. In the application mode, screen sharing automatically stops when the user minimizes or overlaps the application. In this case, the system will notify the user that the presentation is paused.
  • Schedule sharing — presenters can schedule presentations when generating the link. Therefore, even having the link, the viewers will be able to get access to the presentation only at a specified time.
  • Sharing management — allows presenters to manage the screens being shared.
  • User management — lecturers can view the list of viewers and disconnect certain users from the screen-sharing.

The web application provides admin functionality:

  • Sharing management — users can create new screen sharings and manage the existing ones: pause, delete, edit, stop presentations, etc.
  • User management — the app provides basic user and password management functionality.

Softarex’s online conferencing software implements data transfer through several sockets simultaneously, which significantly increases the speed of the system. The system outperforms popular video conferencing software such as WebEx, GoToMeeting in data rate.

Project’s results

  • More easily manageable screen sharing;
  • Accelerated data transmission speed;
  • More accessible and convenient education process.

Technical challenges

  • Development of a solution that will allow users to share the desktop with up to 1000 viewers at a time;
  • Development of functionality that will cover both in-class and distance learning needs.
