News about Clic
We are still working on the development of the JClic project. The first beta version of the application JClic player will be launched in the near future, with a lot of new features:
We are also working on:
- Use of the Java™ WebStart technology, which facilitates the updating of new versions
and allows the use of applications without being connected to the Internet.
- Introduction of the Project libraries, a feature that will allow the automatic downloading and installation of JClic projects, the sharing of activities in a LAN and the organization of icons.
- Support of QuickTime™, to make JClic absolutely compatible with Mac OS X systems.
- New user reports engine, adaptable to different database systems. It will support the administration and query of the data from any web browser.
- A new compilation of activities in a CD-ROM, which will be available on the first trimester of 2003.
- Rebuilding of the Clic's website, using dynamic contents and new search and participation services.
- Development of the JClic author module, that will allow to create and to modify the activities in a new visual, user-friendly interface.
