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.).

Objective: In this thesis the student will have to perform a deep analysis of existing widget-based Web applications. This will include an application for semantic video annotation developed at our chair. The thesis will also create a methodology and an implementation of a demonstrating prototype based on this, in order to check the results obtained from the usability studies.
