Student Engineers Develop Program for Online Class Discussions

Engineering students are developing CourseChat, an instant messaging service

A small group of engineering students in UCLA's chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery are developing CourseChat, an instant messaging service to be incorporated in the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science's course Web site system in fall quarter 2005.

Using an open source instant messaging protocol called Jabber, a communication tool similar to the America Online Instant Messenger or Yahoo Messenger applications, the group is creating a system of virtual communication for UCLA classmates.
