The Great Mind Challenge - Project Scenario Template Note: Already filled information should not be changed

1. Name of the Project Knowledge Based Community Sharing System(KBCSS) Today most of the educational institutions in India are understaffed and does not have a basic interaction with industry. It now exists in such a way that Industries are now not part of the education system. Providing an environment for students/faculty/researcher/industry experts will drive us to make up an online knowledge centre for education and research. The basic idea of KBCSS is to provide an environment for the students and faculty of a university to enhance their technical skills and to share their knowledge with their fellow students or faculty/researchers/industrial experts. It also aims to provide a platform for mutual cooperation between different kinds of users, learning by mining(i.e., previous discussions are a source which is studied). We strongly want to replace the existing e-learning systems of many universities and colleges which are unidirectional i.e., from faculty to students to a bidirectional way i.e., also from student to faculty. A. students/research scholars B. faculty C. industry experts/HR managers D. Administrators i. A well defined expert group and user groups are designed keeping in mind of transformation from one group to other. ii. A secured mechanism for accessing information based on groups. iii. A statistical report generator for individual assessment of a user (student/researcher/faculty) and also for colleges to propose ratings. iv. Expert division based on branches and interests. v. Discussion forums are enforced. vi. Posting materials/research papers are organised vii. Data from previous discussions are organized as notes. viii. A knowledge base(database) is created for maintaining the discussions between users and experts. i. Secure access of confidential data (user’s details). SSL can be used. ii. 24 X 7 availability iii. Better component design to get better performance at peak time iv. Flexible service based architecture will be highly desirable for future extension a. Mobile alerts for informing users about their problem status. b. Using efficient data mining concepts to make up notes for discussions c. HR managers of companies are given permissions on statistical information so as to introduce priority for recruitments. A. Professional look and feel B. Use of AJAX atleast with all registration forms C. Browser testing and support for IE, NN, Mozila, and Firefox. D. Use of Graphical tool like JASPER to show strategic data to admin E. Reports exportable in .XLS, .PDF or any other desirable format
