Dear all,

Among the different tools presented for online collaboration, there is one
developed by
colleagues of my institute, experts in online communities, called BSCW
(Basic Support for
Collaborative Work). It is based on the concept of workspaces. It can be
tested online
here: http://bscw.fit.fraunhofer.de/
You need to create an account. A commercial version is available in:
http://www.bscw.de/
The tool is asynchronous, does not support whiteboard, although it can
beused with
conferencing software.

We are discussing with them the possibility of solving the accessibility
issues the tool
has (and looking for funding <grin />). If the group wishes, I could try to
get Prof.
Prinz present in the first event.

My group is also working under the umbrella of the IRIS project in what we
call the Design
Support Environment, but it is not intended at this time to support
collaborative Web Design.

Regards,
carlos
