Skc: Measuring the Users Interaction Intensity

  • Jaime Moreno Llorena

Semantic KnowCat (SKC) is a groupware system for knowledge management in the Web, by means of semantic information and users interaction without supervision. SKC tries to organise the knowledge contained in the system paying attention to its use. In order to resolve the lack of information about users activity on client side, typical of the Web client/server architecture, SKC has a Client Monitor in charge of taking data on users activity and dealing with the analysis of the user activity register. This analysis results in new information that makes knowledge classification easier, reducing the need for user explicit opinions.
