As some of you may know, we have decided to go on developing Claroline under a new name : Dokeos. See http://www.dokeos.com .
This has many reasons, but one of the most important is that UCL (where I created Claroline 3 years ago) has now a Trade Mark on Claroline but doesn't really want to invest in its development. There will be a release of Dokeos 1.5. that can be considered as the continuation of Claroline 1.4.2. and will allow upgrade from it.
The beta of Dokeos 1.5 should appear on February 27.
There will be an important meeting both physical and online with all the developers and the potential developers of Dokeos, Tuesday 27 February, 10 am (Brussels hour = GMT+1) on :
The participation to the conference is free.
The topic of the conference is a technical discussion to organise the beta release of Dokeos 1.5. So there will be little talk on pedagogy. It is mainly a programmers conference.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The audio is ONE TO MANY. You hear the people that are present in Brussels but you can not talk back. To interact, use the chat (it is a web chat so you don't need any plugin).
HOW TO CONNECT TO THE CONFERENCE?
1. Go to http://www.dokeos.com/online/ at 9h55am GMT+1
2. Type a pseudo (for instance your First name)
3. Click on Audio (you will need a mp3 streaming player like QuickTime 6.1 or later, recent Winamp or even RealPlayer One + a soundcard and speakers or headphone)
4. Listen to the conference, type your questions or proposals on the chat frame below. And that's it.
You can test your computer and sound devices on http://www.dokeos.com/online before. If you hear classical music, then you are ok. See also http://www.dokeos.com/conf.php for a clear description of the tool.
