On the spot test of OU’s voice-on-the-net groupware gets thumbs-up

Lyceum, the OU’s voice-conferencing groupware system not only helps students and tutors communicate, but OU staff. It’s 6.45am, Palo Alto, California, and I’ve just had an unplanned chat with Dave Gosnell on the Lyceum team in ACS. What do I do? Just talk to my laptop mic, listen to Dave, with the additional option of using shared visual tools, as the screenshot shows.

Further stories about Lyceum will be posted in the New Year… Lyceum, one of the spinoffs from KMi’s Stadium Project, is one of the technologies that has been handed over from KMi to CES for mainstream OU development.
