Leveraging these languages allow us to deliver secure, rich experiences right in your favorite browser. No installations or clients installed on your Computer, no browser plugins, no update packages to download every few weeks...or days.
Security and Reliability
While Cross Cultural ESL takes advantage of community backed applications, we chose Microsoft's Azure Cloud infrastructure to ensure 24/7/365 operations. Furthermore, CCESL staff operate exclusively in Microsoft's Office365 software to support student data privacy and teacher availability. To protect student payment information, who better to lean on than the world's biggest retailer, Amazon Pay. Student payment information is never seen or accessed by Cross Cultural ESL directly.
An Open Source Digital Campus
Open Source, if describe in brief, means a global community helps create an maintain the applications. Cross Cultural ESL uses a number of open source applications to benefit from this community. Moodle is our learning platform and used by thousands of educational institutions around the world. Our digital classroom experience is served by the Big Blue Button project offering face-to-face video without clients or installers.
