coffee-soft A platform for Collaborative Discussion in classroom, i.e. face-2-face. CoFFEE (Collaborative Face2Face Educational Environment) offers several collaborative tools, and applications to design, guide and implement a session with students
Welcome at the development site for CoFFEE software. The software has been developed during a 3 years European project named "Lead" (more info at http://www.lead2learning.org) and is a groupware platform for synchronous collaboration for problem-solving activities in the classroom.
As the project Lead is approaching to an end, some external (to the Lead project) activities are taking place on the CoFFEE platform. We list them here. If you are interested in any way to the development, porting, documentation, tutorials, etc. please contact us and we will collaborate on your project:
