Educational institutes are among the biggest customers of Seafile. From file syncing to sharing, from collaboration to long-term data retention, Seafile helps educational institutes to solve many important use cases. Users from educational institutes also actively participate in the Seafile user community, providing valuable feedback and suggestions to our road map. With outstanding reliability and performance, Seafile has become a leading file sync and share solution for educational institutes.
From Sep. 26th to Sep.29th, founders and developers of Seafile Ltd. met with Seafile users from educational institutes in Europe. It was a fruitful trip and we have a lot exciting news to share. The most exciting one is the formation of Seafile educational community.
The meeting was held in Homboldt University of Berlin. Administrators/researchers from other universities and research institutes attended the meeting, including University of Mainz, University of Strasbourg, University of Hannover and PSNC of Poland. Users and Seafile developers actively exchanged ideas about Seafile’s features and development. We received many good inputs into our development road map. Seafile developers presented an outlook to the development of the next year, especially the up-coming Seafile Drive client. People showed a lot of interest to new features.
At the end of the meeting, educational users and the developers all agreed to further advocate the growth of Seafile educational community. The efforts will be lead by Homboldt University of Berlin and University of Mainz. A dedicated educational community forum (https://moodle.hu-berlin.de/course/view.php?id=67467) was set up and maintained by Homboldt University of Berlin. This will become a communication platform for all Seafile educational users to share ideas and coordinate events. More and more institutes will be joining this community. If you’re interested in joining the forum, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the meeting, Seafile developers went on to Munich to meet people from Max Planck Digital Library. We also met with some business partners in Germany. We’ll have more interesting news in the near future.
Welcome to the new Seafile educational community!
