Blackboard aplication!

Hi everyone… I’m getting involved on a shool project where we are trying to develop a blackboard aplication where an user and a tutor can interact remotely. I saw a game called “Inklink” on that implements most of the things I would like to cover. The only problem is that it’s on shockwave and I have never used it! Any ideas on where i could get some info on how to do it on shockwave or maybe even flash?! or better yet anyone interested on helping me build the aplication?! thanks in advance!!
