Palsu

Palsu is an interactive meeting tool that is used to demonstrate capabilities of VIE. The idea is to create a tool for coordinating both online and real-world meetings. This means being able to manage:

  • Meeting scheduling
  • Agenda for meetings
  • Collaboratively written meeting notes
  • Action points (tasks) that arise in the meeting
  • Participants of the meeting, and action points assigned to them

Palsu comes from the Finnish word for a "meeting".
