    Virtual classroom using Stratus?

    onlinelanguagelabs

      Can Stratus be used in a virtual classroom envrionment with a flash-based whiteboard, screen sharing etc? If not, is it possible to run audio-video over Stratus and - in parallel - run the virtual classroom components over Flash Media Server?

       

      Thanks

          In script add this:

           

          private var ringerSound:Sound;

           

          in your program's inti() function add this:

           

          this.ringerSound = new Sound(new URLRequest("http://lukeidiot.com/chat/ring.mp3"));

           

          then play the sound on the function that handles the incoming call:

           

          messageSound.play();

            I've made a collaboration application that demonstrates all the principles you would need to build your own flash based virtual classroom using only stratus (and a peer sharing app/site). http://www.murphysean.com/?p=37

             

            I'll break it down a little bit:

            The whiteboard could be drawn by sending continuosly the mouse position to all the other peers, and the state of the  mouse position (is it drawing, perhaps a color)

            The audio/video is basically built into flash for you, minus aec (Audio Echo Cancellation) because adobe is not sharing their proprietary tech with the community... See here I demonstrate sharing audio/video/chat/and file sharing (which could be implemented better)

             

            You could also buy into the adobe service LCCS which provides everything you are talking about in an api.
