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, coordination and interaction 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, practical work and a seminar part. The lectures give an overview of models in the area of classical CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work). Then, central aspects of interaction design, user experience and design thinking concerning cooperative systems will be covered.

In the practical part, small groups of students work on a case study for a cooperative system. This case study means to design and implement a cooperative system based on topics related to the course. The final technical prototype will be presented in class and complemented with a written seminar report.

The Seminar part uses the book "Networks, Crowds, and Markets" where students in small groups prepare hold presentions throughout the semester. In addion, a written exam on the contents of these presentations and the other lectures concludes the course.
