Bahrain Polytechnic

PARTNER DETAILS

Bahrain Polytechnic has been established by the Bahrain Government to address the need for a skilled Bahraini labour force, with the aim of supporting economic growth and diversification.

Bahrain Polytechnic delivers applied, professional and technical qualifications. Graduates will be work-ready; confident and competent, aware of what is expected of them in the professional world, and able to perform to their full potential.

THE CHALLENGES

As the number of student enrolling to the Polytechnic have been increasing, there was a need to manage student-teacher interaction and improve the learning experience in a virtual environment due to COVID-19, while ensuring students will be work-ready.

A decision was made to adopt an open-source web conferencing system designed for online learning and provides, LMS, engagement tools and analytics.

SOLUTION

After much consideration, Bahrain Polytechnic decided to go ahead with BigBlueButton. It is a is virtual classroom software that has been designed around the real-world needs of teachers, students, and schools. Unlike many corporate web conferencing tools, it is an “education-first” solution.

To host this robust solution, Bahrain Polytechnic was looking for a competent Data center provider. As the institute has continued to grow at a rapid pace, it became increasingly difficult for IT to deliver the online learning experience and other applications reliably.

The Polytechnic needed to be host this infra on a flexible and highly scalable solution to manage ever-growing traffic of students adopting the new digital/online way of learning. It was decided to host it on Amazon Web Services.

WHY AMAZON WEB SERVICES

Bahrain Polytechnic decided to work with Almoayyed Computers Middle East, an Advance Consulting AWS Partner, to build a cloud environment to achieve increased reliability and scalability.

After successful migration of the application to AWS, the focus was to modernize the database by using Amazon Aurora DB for fast retrieval of e-learning content at any level of traffic. Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) with Multi-AZ provides failover capability, improving reliability for the applications. Proactive Monitoring has been brought in to use to minimize failures and detect issues early.

THE BENEFITS

As a result, an improved reliability & security, better solutions for long term storage and improved network accessibility was achieved. Managing some of these dynamic workloads in a planned manner and continuous cost and infra optimization also helped to significantly mange costs and infra.
