"JETS - Java Enabled Telecollaboration System"
MCRLab, University of Ottawa
Real-time collaboration systems, in which participants share multimedia
documents and applications in real time, have been a subject of interest
for many years. Recent advancements in the Internet technology such as
the emergence of Java-enabled browsers, VRML, ActiveX, LiveConnect, and
similar technologies have provided users with access to dynamic
multimedia content and applications on the World Wide Web. Among these
technologies, Java applets seem to have introduced the most exciting
notion: platform-independent applications provided by the network. Using
a web-browser, users can now run applications dynamically off the
network. From a network-centric-computing point of view, the next
logical step towards collaborative environments would to be the
real-time sharing of these applications. In order to achieve that, we
have designed JETS: a generic, multi-user/collaborative system which
enables the real-time sharing of Java applets through the Internet.
Shervin Shirmohammadi received his B.A.Sc. and M.A.Sc in the Eletrical
and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Ottawa in 1995
an 1996, respectively . His Masters work, conducted at the Multimedia
Communications Research Laboratory (MCRLab), focused on Multiuser
Internet Tools and Applications for TeleCollaboration and Distance
Learning. Amongst many academic awards, Shervin has received the
Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO) Gold Medal and the University of
Ottawa Gold Medal. Shervin is one of the newest Ph.D. candidates at the
MCRLab, conducting research under financial assistance of both the
Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) and the TeleLearning Network of
Centres of Excellence (TL-NCE).
