  Description     : environment for cooperative knowledgemanagment

sTeam provides a technical platform which allows groups of students, lecturers
and any other groups to construct and arrange their individual and cooperative
learning and working space.

sTeam consists of an object-oriented server connected to a database and Web,
Java and other (ftp, irc, ...) clients. The server is event-driven and manages
all user objects as well as the communication between the connected clients.

Different from most other cooperation tools is the novel possibility of
self-organisation and self-administration by the members within the virtual

In the core, the system provides the following self-administrating functions:

     * creation of rooms
     * granting of admission or access authorisations
     * administration and processing of objects or references to objects and
       documents located on other servers
     * carrying objects and passing them on to other users
     * use of rooms as cooperative media (e.g. Shared Whiteboard)

a more detailed description can be found on the website:
