Subject Bluessky calls for a new mentor!!!
Date Thu, 30 Jun 2011 00:50:24 GMT

Now, Bluesky project calls for a new mentor to guide us to complete the
release work of 4th version.

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.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. And it entered incubation on 2008-01-12.

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 Access of mobile
terminal, 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.

Currently,Bluesky project has evolved into the 4th version system with more
flexible applications and stabilities. We had developed the core
applications of bluesky system with QT to support both Windows and Linux.
What's more important, the new version system has the feature of integrated
applications, which means that user can record a video during the
interactive process and then  play it in VOD method.The third advancement is
that the 4th version sysytem supports Android platform and we can further
advance Blursky in the mobile domain.

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 new version of BlueSky system is already
handy to release.We really need to add an enthusiastic and responsive mentor
to help us to complete full cycle of successful release.So we hope that with
the help of developers all around the world, the system could become more
powerful and functional in education area.

We appreciate your attentions to Bluesky project.

Best regards.
