Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

A cooperative system may be defined as combination of technologies, human beings and organizations which is supporting their communication and coordination in order to contribute to the efficient realization of their joint objectives. This lecture covers cooperative systems in ICT from a holistic perspective which includes technical, design-related and user-centered aspects.

The VU "Cooperative Systems" (052700, 6 ECTS) consists of lectures and practical work. The lectures give an overview of models in the area of classical CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work). This is followed by a case-study-driven discussion of Social Software about the interrelation of technology and social practice. Finally, aspects of technical and interaction design of cooperative systems will be covered.

In the practical part, students (1) take a written exam on the lecture contents, (2) write a seminar paper on an application of cooperative systems, (3) design and implement a cooperative system based on topics related to the course.

Moreover we discuss formal models of cooperation in the context of Cooperative Game Theory. The corresponding units are taught according to the "flipped classroom" method and will be subject to a separate written exam.

Assessment and permitted materials

Performance will be graded by
- a written exam (to be done individually),
