I’ve just been trying to sort out some of the software etc., on my PC.
BuddySpace An OU project that uses the Jabber network. It tries to place people on a map – which can be an office plan – or a map of the globe. Can’t use it at work (I thought it was because I’d forgotten my Jabber details), but it uses the *wrong* ports.
FlashMeeting. Another OU project – this one does work in the University (or it did last year when I tested it). This time it’s got video feeds. They’ve links to yet another project – one that I’ve not tried – Hexagon which sounds really promising.
GroupWise Messenger. We’ve recently had our email system at work changed to Groupwise – so we get groupwise messenger as well. Not sure it’s that much use, as it only works with people in the system – i.e. other staff. I’d rather something that I can use with the students and people outside the university.
