[ba-unrev-talk] Fle3 1.3.0 - CSCL software

Hi,    (01)

UIAH Media Lab, University of Art and Design Helsinki, Finland has 
released the first non-beta version of a computer supported 
collaborative learning (CSCL) software, called Fle3. Fle3 is Open Source 
and Free Software released under the GNU GPL.    (02)

Fle3 is designed to support group centered work that concentrates on 
creating and developing expressions of knowledge (i.e. knowledge 
artefacts). The design has been inspired, among other things, by Dr. 
Engelbart's work. I thought that, people in this list could be 
interested in Fle3 and give us valuable feedback.    (03)

Fle3 WebTops can be used by teachers and students to store different 
items (documents, files, links, knowledge building notes) related to 
their studies, organize them to folders and share them with others. 
WebTop also includes "shared folder" for each study work or project.    (04)

With Fle3 Knowledge Building tool groups may carry out knowledge 
building dialogues, theory building and debates by storing their 
thoughts into a shared database. The study group may use Knowledge Types 
to scaffold and structure their dialogues. The Knowledge Type sets are 
fully editable and one may export and import them. Fle3 comes with two 
default Knowledge Type sets: (1) Progressive Inquiry, and (2) Design 
Thinking.    (05)

Fle3 Jamming tool is a shared space for collaborative construction of 
digital artefacts (pictures, text, audio, video). A study group may work 
together with some digital artefacts by uploading and downloading files. 
Versions are tracked automatically and different versions are displayed 
graphically. Jamming can be used for many kind of collaborative work 
requiring versioning.    (06)
