Subject Bluesky calls for a new mentor!
Date Thu, 30 Jun 2011 01:12:37 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.
