Environment for cooperative knowledge management
sTeam provides a technical platform which allows groups of students, lecturers and any other groups to construct and arrange their individual and cooperative learning and working space.
sTeam consists of an object-oriented server connected to a database and Web, Java and other (ftp, irc, ...) clients. The server is event-driven and manages all user objects as well as the communication between the connected clients.
Different from most other cooperation tools is the novel possibility of self-organisation and self-administration by the members within the virtual environment.
In the core, the system provides the following self-administrating functions:
* creation of rooms * granting of admission or access authorisations * administration and processing of objects or references to objects and documents located on other servers * carrying objects and passing them on to other users * use of rooms as cooperative media (e.g. Shared Whiteboard)
A more detailed description can be found on the website: http://www.open-steam.org/
sTeam needs a mysql server, but it need not necessarily be installed on the same computer.
This package contains the sTeam server.
