Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "BlueSky" by ivysummer
Date Fri, 18 Sep 2009 08:11:30 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by ivysummer:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  BlueSky is an e-learning solution designed to help solve the disparity in availability of
qualified education between well-developed cities and poorer regions of China (e.g., countryside
of Western China).  BlueSky is already deployed to 12 + 5 primary/high schools with positive
reviews.  
  
  == Proposal ==
- We propose to move future development of BlueSky to the Apache Software Foundation in order
to build a broader user and developer community. We hope to encourage contributions and use
of Bluesky by other developing countries with similar education needs. 
+ We propose to move future development of BlueSky to the Apache Software Foundation in order
to build a broader user and developer community. We hope to encourage contributions and use
of Bluesky by other developing countries with similar education needs. Currently, the BlueSky
system is still not handy to deploy or ,what we think, not economical enough for poor region.
So we hope that with the help of developers all around the world, the system could become
more powerful and functional in education area.

  BlueSky is consisted with two subsystems -- RealClass system and MersMp system, both of
which contains 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. 
  
- BlueSky was originally created by Qinghua Zheng and Jun Liu in September 2005. The BlueSky
development is being done at XJTU-IBM Open Technology and Application Joint Develop Center,
more than 20 developers are involved.

it is on the way to the first release.
  
  == Rationale ==
  
- The ''Blue Sky Distance Collaboration System''(''BlueSky'') Project is an open source cosmic
distance collaboration project. By open source distance collaboration software we mean: Open
Source Collaboration Player, Open Source Collaboration Recording Tool, Open Source Distance
Collaboration System, Open Source Resources Sharing and Management Platform. And BlueSky can
be extended in such parts as Video Conference, E-Learning, Remote Assistant and so on. Its
official site is at [http://202.117.16.176/ here].

ffmpeg).  Prior to vote for final acceptance, this GPL code must be removed.

  == Current Status ==
  
- BlueSky has been on incubation for the first stage on apache community. The Bluesky Project
is an e-learning solution designed to balance education resources between well-developed cities
and poor regions of China, that is, bringing qualified education resources to backward area
students.Infrastructure has been set up. Mailing lists for dev, commits and user, with official
website, are operational.We are checking our code by deleting or replacing the libs used which
is against the ASL for upload.

- Two modules of the project,that is DTU and Tserver,have been modified by using stlport to
replace gpl based c++ code except for some minor mistakes.The official website has been updated
and formal reports are added.We strive hard to learn the related contents of how to incubate
successfully in Apache community ,which is sure a great help to our future work.
