The CSCL lab supports research and development of the COMPS Computer-Mediated Problem-Solving project. COMPS is a web-delivered chat program for students to work together, applying group cognition and creative interdependence for students to explore and learn conceptual knowledge. COMPS exercises are highly interactive, students are typing and responding to each other simultaneously.
COMPS research areas include:
natural language processing
assessment of dialogue
The CSCL lab hosts software development, provides work space for graduate and undergraduate student researchers, hosts a server for COMPS applications, and serves as a project headquarters.
This lab has been supported by ONR, DARPA, and NSF.Lab director: Jung Hee Kim, Dept of Computer Science.
