Project main features

Intranet for remote collaboration

The project connects educational experts from two different continents allowing them to collaborate and share information in a private intranet. Each group member can use tools for document sharing, discussion, event scheduling and task management. A customizable e-mail notification system ensures that the intranet members can stay always up-to-date.

Groups for remote collaboration

Intranet moderators can create groups and invite other members to discuss a specific topic or tackle a particular regional issue. Group members will be able to access only content and information from the groups they belong to. Groups can be either private or public, allowing moderators to also have an easy-to-use dissemination tool for their activities.

Multi-language support

The Alfa Puentes project brings together a linguistically diverse community. The whole system is completely available in three languages, English, Spanish and Portuguese, with a convenient interface to manage both content and interface translation. Group moderators can also decide on their groups language, lowering barriers for participation.

Mini-sites for event organization

The Alfa Puentes community does not live only on-line: the project consortium organizes several events during the course of the project. Nuvole created a mini-site system for event organization, supporting registration management, customizable look-and-feel and internationalization. Each site also display practical information and news about the event.
