The SYNERGO Collaborative Mapping Environment is an experimental software prototype developed by the University of Patras HCI group that can be used to support collaborative problem solving and collaborative activity analysis and research.
The main use of SYNERGO is in developing diagrammatic representations like Concept Maps, Entity-Relationship diagrams and Flow Charts. SYNERGO puts emphasis on synchronous drawing activities of partners working at a distance. The target user of SYNERGO is higher education students and knowledge workers who use such representations in design and engineering courses.
The new beta, release(version 5) of Synergo Client and Supervisor station includes stylus and projector support.
