eConf is an open source e-learning software, written in Java. It allows to easily record web sessions. eConf is an add-on to an HTTP proxy that is able to capture the web pages shown during the session and the voice of the presenter. The audio and the web pages are then synchronized to allow the students to listen to the recorded course.
WebReplay is an open source applet which allows playing back web sessions in synchronization with an audio file. WebReplay has been designed as a companion of eConf and is used as the client of the recorded sessions. More information about WebReplay can be found at the offical site: http://www.infonet.fundp.ac.be/soft/webreplay/
No. The current release of eConf is built on top of the W3C's Jigsaw proxy. This proxy is provided with each eConf release.
Simply modified the following file in the player directory of the release (by default, otherwise this is the directory defined by the econf.webreplay.path property):
error.html gives some tricks to find out why it is not working. You can add your own experience and contact there
blank.html is the slide that is shown before the first slide is requested by the user
welcome.html is the welcome message that WebReplay provides once it has intialized sucessfully
eConf is under the GNU General Public License (GPL), so you are free to modify it for your needs. However, it would be nice to share these improvments with us. Please see http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/econf/ for more information.
