Project description

The objective of this project is to design and evaluate new software paradigms for creating collaborative applications, with a focus on remote teaching applications. The project studies the use of component frameworks (based on Java Beans) in order to define generic situations within such applications. We developed a framework for the « get help » problem, i.e., the problem of a student requesting help from a tutor. In particular, we proposed a new framework for the run-time tailoring of the application through the distribution of new components that are automatically inserted at specific places within the application. Finally, we are currently designing an awareness framework for the automatic distribution of events within user groups, based on the interest of these groups.
