Bachelor, Master
A user-friendly GUI to select intermodal Itineraries
Posted on 28. Oct 2014; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke; Advisor(s): Dipl.-Inform. Christian Samsel, Dr. Karl-Heinz Krempels
Selecting the approriate ntermodal itinerary out of large pool of options can be challenging. Current and next generation travel information systems like qixxit or moovel tackle this problem in different ways. We would like to create GUI prototypes based on different archetypes and give a definite answer by making a user study.

Agent Based Modeling of Cash Flows in Virtual Marktes
Posted on 15. Aug 2014; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke; Advisor(s): Dipl.-Kfm. Markus Christian Beutel, Dr. Karl-Heinz Krempels
We want you to model and simulate the cash flows across market entities in different scenarios to investigate the effects on the economic system.
Automated Usability Testing for mobile Applications - Tool to create Problem Specifications
Posted on 15. May 2014; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke; Advisor(s): Wolfgang Kluth, M.Sc. RWTH, Dr. Karl-Heinz Krempels
The aim of this thesis is to develop a tool to create usability problem specifications for further pattern recognition as part of an Automated Usability Testing environment.
Demand-based Bus Routing
Posted on 28. Jan 2014; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke; Advisor(s): Dr. Karl-Heinz Krempels, Dipl.-Inform. Sevket Gökay
The goal is to develop a bus transportation system for rural areas in which buses can change their routes based on demand from bus stops.

Posted on 14. Dec 2013; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR, Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke; Advisor(s): Dr. Frank Celler (triAGENS GmbH)
The goal of this thesis is to implement functionality for a multi model database to run established graph algorithms parallelized.
Bachelor, Master
Informal Learning at the Workplace via Adaptive Video
Posted on 18. Jul 2014; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR, Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke; Advisor(s): Dr. Milos Kravcik, Petru Nicolaescu, M.Sc.
Learning at the workplace is to a large extent informal. Trainees often need consultations with more experienced colleagues who can answer their questions or demonstrate certain practice. This process is usually very time consuming for the more knowledgeable ones, who often need to repeat their explanations for various trainees. There is a high potential to make this process more efficient by means of technology, especially by using the power of multimedia. The aim of this work is to enhance informal learning at the workplace by using the available video annotation solutions and based on them to develop new video adaptation techniques. We intend to exploit various types of annotations and use them to provide direct access to the relevant parts of them, which depend on the current context and situational demands.
Learning Analytics and Motivation for Serious Games in Medical Education
Posted on 02. Oct 2013; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR, Dr. Andreas Herrler
Based on a realized mobile serious game for medical education this thesis should realize a learning analytics module and motivational support by "open badges".
Master, Diplom

Design and Development of a Model Repository for Model Management
Yankov, Dragomir in 2014; Supervised by PD Dr. Christoph Quix, Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke; Advisor(s): PD Dr. Christoph Quix
Model management is a eld which supports information integration tasks by de ning and formalizing operations on models and mappings. A reasonable requirement on model management operators is that they are generic, that is, abstract from any concrete metamodel. A further necessity in data integration and model management is to have a repository which stores models (or parts of models) and mappings and enables their easy retrieval for tasks such as schema reuse or benchmarking of model management operators. In this master thesis proposal we motivate the need for a schema repository for models and mappings in the Generic Role-based Metamodel (GeRoMe) as a part of the GeRoMeSuite model management platform and describe the underlying approach for its existing functionality and the functionality which will be implemented as part of the master thesis. After completing the master thesis project, the repository will be able to store models, transform them randomly and generate mappings between the original and the corresponding model, store similarity scores between model fragments and o er a search by keyword capability.
Redesigning Web Applications for Collaboration: A Widgetizing Methodology
Volkan Günal in 2014; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke, PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR; Advisor(s): Petru Nicolaescu, M.Sc.
This thesis should develop a methodological approach for transforming single-user Web applications into widget-based collaborative Web applications, by conducting usability studies on existing prototypes developed by the research community. Furthermore, the concepts developed in this context should be applied and tested on a small prototype, implemented using trending Web technologies (e.g. HTML5, Javascript, etc.).
