Abstract

This paper discusses the integration of open-source and proprietary software in the framework of a European-funded pilot project. It simultaneously describes the topic of the project, the development of an integrated solution enabling to easily produce audiovisual content for Vocational Education and Training, the benefits the end-users enjoy thanks to the proposed solution, and the internal working procedures of the consortium, including the pros and cons of the selected groupware and the means to take users' opinions into account during an iterative prototyping process.
