KnowCat: A Tool For Knowledge Crystallisation
The goal of the KnowCat project is the creation of a distributed non-supervised system for structuring knowledge. KnowCat stands for "Knowledge Catalyser" and its purpose is to enable the crystallisation of collective knowledge as a result of user interaction, so it may be classified as a groupware tool. The system is used for generating quality educational materials as the automatic result of the interaction of students with these materials, by catalysing the crystallisation of knowledge.
Funded by Comunidad Autónoma de Madrid during years 1998-2000 (07T/0027/1998).
