Argunaut is a tool which combines a discussion environment (Digalo2), user and portfolio management and a special module called the Moderatorís Interface. The Moderator's Interface aims at providing the moderator of synchronous e-discussions with an overall solution for awareness and feedback/intervention options. It may also provide opportunities for post-discussion reflection and analysis, using sophisticated AI techniques.
To use Argunaut via the internet, please download Argunaut-L Client 1.0.1 (for Windows, Mac OS or Linux) from the Collide Group website, run the executable and follow the instructions. Please note that the Argunaut Client requires JAVA 1.5 to run properly. A short description of the Moderatorís Interface and the rationale behind its development can be found here. The full documentation for Argunaut can be found here. To use Argunaut via Intranet (e.g., a local installation in a school computer lab), please read the server installation instructions before downloading and installing the client. Once youíve set up the Argunaut server according to the instructions, you may download the client file (linked above) and install it.
Map-It is a tool that supports preparation, execution and analysis of meetings (face-to-face and remote). Synchronous and asynchronous interactions are possible through the collaborative elaboration of "discussion maps" that capture user interactions. Map-It allows the use of meeting templates, in-advance individual preparations, the sharing of artifacts, planning and follow-up of actions, and the automatic generation of meeting minutes in various formats.
