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.
