Titel: Concept and implementation of an intelligent agent within a synchronous groupware
Thema: A synchronous groupware named PASSENGER was developed at the University of Duisburg – Essen throughout the last years. This system is a client-/server-based application with an integrated client-/user-interface. This interface consists of a communication component, a cooperation component and several tools to carry out software engineering tasks. The system is designed for spatially distributed collaborative working and especially for the usage in Software Engineering – Education. As one of the educational settings every virtual team consists of three students and one tutor, where the same tutor can be a member in several virtual teams. Due to the fact that the virtual teams can meet at the same time or at times outside main office hours, agent technology shall be used in order to monitor the participants’ activity.
Beschreibung: Within the frame of this thesis, an investigation of different intelligent software agents’ architectures is to be conducted. The investigated models shall be ranked according their proposed usage within the synchronous grupware PASSENGER. Based on that, a model has to be selected and integrated into the PASSENGER architecture model. A proper architecture model for the interface agent should be developed and integrated within the Passenger system. The main requirements for the agent are: • The agent should have the ability to monitor the students’ activity within a Passenger session • Based on the students’ activity the agent should create a student profiles database • The agent should have ablility to predict which student needs individual help and also to report its predictions to a human-tutor. The Interactive Development Environment Borland Delphi standard edition 7.0 is available for the implementation. The functionality of this agent has to be tested within a Passenger session.
