    Hi Haytham,

    Congrea is a complete open source application. Server code is already open that is in node.js.
    You can download it form GitHub :-

    great!!! Thank you very much Pinky!! this is really great job by you and the team...
    is there any any documentation for configuring my own server... as I see in the plugin we have to choose local or
    so, I have to install the node server, run it, then change some lines on the plugin code to use my node server instead of ?

    and is there any other configuration I have to do?

    Sorry, No documentation is available for local server configuration.
    You need to install node server and then choose local option to serve congrea file in plugin config.
    In auth file at line 62, change if condition to false for local server deployment.
    That's all, no need to do any further configuration or changes. That will work for you.

    ok, thanks again...
    I will try to install it and if I succeeded i will do the documentation for it and publish it here...

    I tried to run the nodejs file but i think there are some problems that I need to check because the message shown is always "upgrade needed".

    also I noticed that voice and camera are not working in local server... is it because of the node server not installed or the need for ssl?

    Yeah, SSL is required to work some features like ScreenSharing. For voice and camera you need to allow it while joining virtual class room.

    @moodle learner At present Congrea is in Beta. It is an open source software so you can use it for life long and hopefully there will always be people who will provide support. By trial, we mean it is trial on our Cloud infrastructure. Once Congrea becomes stable, we will launch commercial plans, you may continue to use open source version on your own or our cloud plans.

    Hi! I think congrea seems to be a great tool in principal. But the sound quality I get is TERRIBLE... Any tips on how to improve this?

    Dear Per,

    I hope all your students are using headphones as sound coming out from speakers could creates a positive feedback look with microphone.

    Could you please describe, what is bad in sound? I mean, do you get echo, noise, breaks in sound, low volume?

    Hello all. I just installed per the instructions. I was able to enter once as an instructor. Now on a different test, I only get "Read Only" access. On setting up a course link, I am not able to see a list of instructors. When I select the "Desktop Share" button (I think that was the label), nothing happens. I have downloaded and installed the screenshare addins. Is there something I am missing to get this work?

    Hi Donald,

    Only selected teacher has privilege of instructor. The teacher list you can get on Congrea setting page only after enrolled some users as teachers on course where Congrea activity is existing.

    'Desktop Share' button is only for install our Add-ons that lets you share the screen with other participates.

    Still if you face any problem please share this with us.

    Thank you.

    I installed successfully the congrea module with moodle 2.8 I had your KEY API on my part but using this module and when adding a new session (a new activity) I get a blank page.
    how to solve this problem knowing that I use a UBUNTU 14.02 server and that I use php 5.
    NB: I installed the same module under my platform moodle 2.8 locally with windows server and it works properly and wonderfully.
    I thank you for helping me to solve this problem that lasts for 1 month.
