  • Desenvolvimento dirigido por modelos e ontologias na construção de aplicações educacionais

    (0)
    Publicado em May 14th, 2009Uncategorized

    O projeto tem os seus objetivos centrados na integração de novos elementos tecnológicos com ênfase (i) na aplicação de materiais de aprendizagem de forma padronizada, com o suporte de especificações padrão de metadados educacionais, e (ii) ênfase na representação do conhecimento pedagógico aplicável a diversas situações de ensino/aprendizagem com o suporte da engenharia de software e engenharia ontológica. O uso estas especificações permitiria a descrição do processo educacional na forma de unidades ou blocos contendo uma descrição do processo e os conteúdos de aprendizagem com a finalidade de tratar questões de interoperabilidade e reutilização. A integração destas tecnologias traria como principais vantagens:

    • Permitir a manipulação de objetos e unidades de aprendizagem (U.A.) de forma bastante flexível com a possibilidade de definição/(re)utilização de unidades de aprendizagem interoperáveis a partir de um repositório de conteúdos  educacionais facilitando o suporte ao trabalho do professor;
    • Facilitar o desenvolvimento de atividades com base na personalização a partir de unidades de aprendizagem individualizadas;
    • Facilitar a avaliação diagnóstica e continuada a partir do registro de execução (log) de unidades de aprendizagem.

    A fim de facilitar as tarefas relativas ao processo de Engenharia de Software e torná-las mais consistentes, este trabalho propõe o uso de uma metodologia de desenvolvimento de software baseada em ontologias, com foco na utilização deste conhecimento sistematizado desde a elicitação de requisitos até as fases de projeto e implementação. Pretende-se a adaptação desta metodologia numa abordagem de desenvolvimento dirigido por modelo, mais especificamente MDA (Model Driven Architecture).

    O projeto será desenvolvido pela FACAPE, UFBA, UNIVASF e UNEB. Interessados podem obter mais informações pelo endereço ines@facape.br.

  • Models, Processes and Tools for the Development of Context-Sensitive Systems

    (0)
    Publicado em May 13th, 2009About the Institute, News

    In a time when people use different devices and systems to accomplish their different and daily tasks, using the concept of context in computing systems is becoming a necessity. Context supports a system to identify what can or cannot be relevant to the user, since it aids increasing the understanding about the situation the user is in. Systems that use contextual information to guide their actions and behavior are called context-sensitive systems. Developing such a system, however, is not trivial. One must solve questions such as: what kind of information to be considered as context, how to represent them, how they can be acquired and processed and how to design the context usage.

    In order to reduce the complexity embedded in this kind of application, this project intends to build an infrastructure to support designers of context-sensitive systems, that includes a reference architecture, metamodels, processes and tools. It will be investigated how the usage of model-driven development (MDD) can assist building these applications. It will be developed some prototypes of applications related to modeling processes in distributed software development and mechanisms of context-sensitive recommendation in organizational social networks.

    This project is coordinated by DCC/UFBA and CIn-UFPE, and has the participation of UFPB and CESAR. People interested in collaborate can contact us through vaninha@ufba.br.

  • Tests Generation, Selection, Prioritization and Processing Product Line Project Hires a Scholar

    (0)
    Publicado em May 12th, 2009About the Institute, News

    Tests Generation, Selection, Prioritization and Processing Product Line project is hiring a professional, with funds from the INES, to perform activities of organizing, monitoring, technical leadership and development of several product lines of tools for testing.

    The project aims to investigate the generation, selection, prioritization and processing of test cases. The idea is to build product lines, using the same open-source framework, which bound to have profiles will lead to tools belonging to the same line. The project is available at INES a.m.i.g.o.s.

  • Tests Generation, Selection, Prioritization and Processing Product Line

    Publicado em May 12th, 2009News

    Test is the main activity used by industry to ensure software quality. Because of this, companies have invested more time and effort in this task. It is estimated that between 30 and 90% of total cost to develop software is assigned to tests.

    This project aims to investigate techniques and tools to generation, selection, prioritization and processing tests. Our main goal is to develop tools such as product lines, allowing them to be used by different companies. This will be through the development of an open-source framework that enables new products to be easily engaged and created. The features of the framework will be common to all generated tests tools (outside the project). Such tools will surely have inputs, outputs and different facilities and will be developed by another institution or company wishing to use the framework.

    Faced with this challenge, we have the cooperation of those interested in interacting or contribute in any way for the expansion project. More information at INES a.m.i.g.o.s.

    Publicado em May 11th, 2009About the Institute, News

    The Software Productivity Laboratory Network of INES (see summary here), hires a person to lead and plan the activities of the laboratory pilot productivity software. The project goal is to contribute to the formation of human capital in developing high-level software, and with the absorption, processing and dissemination for the software industry, techniques, practices and tools for high productivity.

  • Software Productivity Laboratory Network

    Publicado em May 11th, 2009About the Institute, News

    The Software Productivity Laboratory Network of INES, coordinated by the Center for Informatics of the UFPE, aims to prepare software developers with high-level, capable of being readily absorbed by outstanding companies in the global software and also, processing, absorption and dissemination to industry, techniques, practices and tools for high productivity, including those developed by the INES.

    The idea of this proposal is that the Software Productivity Laboratory Network as a factory works software distributed by the various institutions participating in the project. Including, real customers, undergraduate and master’s degree, working in various research activities, developing and maintaining software, and professors, Ph.D. students, technical leaders, developers and industry directing and supervising the activities of the factory. Currently the network has staff distributed the following institutions: UFPE (home institution), CESAR,UFRPE and UPE (Recife-PE), UFBA (Salvador-BA), UFCG (Campina Grande-PB), UFRN (Natal-RN), and UFS (Aracaju-SE).

    Initially, activities related to this project will be developed on the facilities of the Center for Informatics of the UFPE. In general, these activities are the creation of laboratories of Software Engineering, related to the preparation of training courses for human resources, in order to complement the training of students who will be part of the pilot laboratory productivity software.

    If you are interested in more information and clarification on the “Software Productivity Laboratory Network”, or even interact and collaborate with this initiative, like innovative ideas, preparation of teaching materials for students of the laboratory, indication of projects to be developed by the network, or something else, you can contact the address cof@cin.ufpe.br
