  == Background ==
  Bluesky is being sponsored in part by IBM and by the Government of the PRC, through funding
of a program headed by Prof. Zheng Qing Hua of Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU)in Xi'an PRC.
 The project originated as a tool to help solve the great disparity between access to high
quality education between the developed regions in China and the ledd developed regions. As
of today, approx 70% of China's population live in rural, less developed regions of China.
Bluesky helps teachers in the developed regions provide instruction to children in these poorer,
less developed regions. 
  
- BlueSky is a set of flexible, extensible applications such as "Distance Collaboration System",
"Collaboration player", "Collaboration recording tool", "Resources Sharing and Management
Platform " and so on, designed by engineers and educators with years of experience in the
problem domain, as well as a framework that makes it possible to create new applications that
exist with others.
