The flashmeeting project

FM Technologies

Flashmeeting is an academic research project aimed at understanding the nature of online events and helping users to meet and work more effectively. However, FM technologies also, kinda, just work! So we have quite a few services out in the world now...



FM Technologies support a number of servers, and a large number of user communities. If you are a European Researcher, an OpenLearner, a member of the Open University, or a School Teacher, then one of the services below may be for you.
