Thanks for your interest in my software.
Quadronegro (blackboard in portuguese) was written to fulfill my own
needs for educational software, and I have used it in several courses.
Later, I replaced it with VebKlaso (web+class in Esperanto), a better
and more flexible application for about the same needs (see
http://www.vebklaso.com). It is not yet free, but maybe someday I'll put
it in GPL.
I'm not aware in any school using Quadronegro in a real course, sorry.
Anyway, I would be happy to help anyone interested in making it useful.
