Students Graph

Project Positioning allows 2nd year students to make a survey on a freely chosen context in order to define a problematic and the opportunity to set up a design project. I decided first to add keywords (tags) to each project in order to get a tag-cloud visually reflecting subjects that interest students .
Here, you can see this cloud where “Web2.0″, “socialnetworks” and “interaction” are the most mentioned keywords. The Cloud is made with the online application Wordle

Then, as part of my current research, I used TouchGraph to generate a map of relationships between students relating to the tags of their projects.

This kind of visualisation may be really useful in our internal SocialBookmarking system based on SemanticScuttle and called “library”.
Clement Faydi as already developed a tool : “top.library” that allows students to find collaborators on further design projects, based on their bookmarks. Unfortunately, top.library doesn’t provide graphical representation, I hope we can soon set it up ;)
