A Rich and Integrated Group Communication Environment

Realtime and non-realtime communication tools have become mature enough to offer them on a large scale as supporting applications for group communication processes. SURFnet expanded a data collaboration environment with realtime (synchronous) collaboration tools for Presence, IM, web-based videoconferencing, chat, and applicationsharing. Groupmembers can start a session from an IM client, through e-mail, or a web browser.
Groups supported are an Economics class (lectures), an educational project (ad-hoc collaboration off hours), hospital doctors (discussing patient cases). A pilot project has been concluded and the results are presented, together with SURFnets plans to build a managed service based on this.
