The COVID-19 pandemic has changed online education and distance learning forever. With over 1.2 billion students learning outside the classroom, face-to-face education has changed dramatically, giving rise to e-learning, where teaching is conducted remotely on digital platforms.

For students and teachers to educate and collaborate, online teaching places high demands on content delivery speed, website security, data transmission quality, and real-time interactive experiences. As teachers and students shift from onsite to offsite learning, technical issues such as slow loading speeds, poor network connectivity, lack of interaction during the class, and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks can disrupt the distance-learning environment and distract from the learning experience.
