need a module for chat and whiteboard

I'm looking for a drupal module that will perform the following or at least as close as possible.  the Dimdim module would have been perfect but it looks as if its unstable and is not being supported:
Thanks in advance:
**********************************
Step 1
student login form asks :
screen name
grade
subject
Student is placed in queue for next available teacher. 
Step 2
Teachers view form info in queue.
Teacher selects students from queue and brings them into session.
Step 3
Tutoring Session screen includes  shared whiteboard and chat box
Optional funtions: doc sharing, desktop sharing, shared calculator (again - no email address can be required)
Step 4
Teacher ends session and returns to queue of waiting students

Admin Functions
Statistical recording of sessions from login form.
Recording of chat transcripts for supervisor review.

I saw the first one you mentioned.  It had a lot of chat components but none of them had an integrated whiteboard.  The other's didn't even come close.  I need something that will support real-time collaboration similar to what a web conferencing tool might provide.

I would look at these, http://freshmeat.net/search/?q=whiteboard§ion=projects&Go.x=0&Go.y=0.

They don't naturally integrate with Drupal, but you could do it yourself or pay someone a little.

Yea I've seen that site before also.  Building it myself and paying someone is exactly what I was trying to avoid.  I came accross an interesting product that does pretty much everything I need at http://www.123flashchat.com/drupal-chat.html but it doesn't seem to have an extensive api.  I can't figure out how to get the student and teacher into the private chat session after the student fills out the initial form.  I need to load the student in a que and once the teacher is ready to speak with a new student the teacher pushes a button somewhere and the two are connected into a private chat session.

Almost inevitably you are going to do some amount of custom PHP coding to get your desired product achieved. That module looks pretty good.

Yea,  it looks like there's a decent api for that product.  I obviously didn't see the link at first.
