Today, working in an open and collaborative skills is one of the most demanded in the ICT world to which we are oriented. To this end we believe is essential to have tools and technologies that facilitate and encourage this ability to develop our capabilities in an appropriate manner. The purpose of this project is to design and implement a tool to facilitate group work within the different courses and subjects of the EPSC. The basic idea is to establish a social network formed only by users of the EPSC, which can create groups of subjects managed with by the teacher. This would define different user profiles (student, teacher, guest ...) each having special characteristics and functions different from the others, providing them with more or less depending on the profile permissions. The information would also be subject to different types of view, depending on which users could see a group of a subject, all users ... being a common forum for both general events (demonstrations, lectures, open tables ...) as a way to share information and discoveries while working with your group, as your class or around the world. The initial idea is to implement the use of freeware tools and technologies such as Tomcat, My SQL Server, Spring, Struts, Hibernate, J2ee, jquery-ui, etc,. To conduct a pilot project, and if it works, it could generate a stronger infrastructure in the future.
