Croquet: A System Architecture for Real-Time Collaboration and Communication

Sunday, January 29 | 11:00PM–11:00PM
Session Type: Resources
A critical barrier to open education is the lack of what computer visionary Alan Kay once called a meta-medium-a persistent, unified, and extensible networked environment. With Kay's support, a consortium led by the University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota is developing a state-of-the-art, open source architecture capable of overcoming many of the technical barriers that stand in the way of spontaneous, synchronous, and deeply collaborative online learning.
