The interests of synchronous communications in collaborative activities have been recognized by an important number of researches and experiments. More recent technical environments offer the use of synchronous communications as a collaborative learning solution for a group of distributed users, where each one gains independence from each other and joins a collaboration activity by their own.
PLATINE environment offers a lot of mechanisms that can be used in different contexts: e-learning ,co-design, cooperative work...
After a short description of the PLATINE software, the goal of this presentation is to give the reasons why to distribute PLATINE under the free softwarelicence CECILL-B. We will present the difficulties encountered in this stage, but also the positive repercussions related to this kind of diffusion. In conclusion, we will present a development and new usage of the PLATINE components.
