Project Description
Scribe is being developed as a collaborative note taking application. It is geared towards college students who wish to take notes in a group setting and has the ability to use Microsoft Office PowerPoint slide shows as background images. (Other file types will hopefully be supported). This project is written in C# for .NET 3.0

The team's final semester at Michigan State University is over. Scribe has moved into its first beta stage at which it will most likely sit until Fall 2007 when another team of developers pick up the project and continue on what we built. There will be many minor updates over the summer, but no major releases are planned. Please download and try out our application! We will be keeping a list of known/current issues on a Discussion thread and any other issues can be posted to the Issue Tracker.
