Bachelor
Component Crawler for Mixed Reality Projects
Posted on 10. Jan 2020; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR; Advisor(s): Benedikt Hensen, M.Sc.
For mixed reality applications, developers usually choose a modular development approach where the application-logic is segmented into separate components which only realize one feature. In well-designed projects, the components are reusable in different contexts within the project but also outside of it. Additionally, code from these projects can be used to find examples how to use APIs or libraries. However, many elementary features of mixed reality applications are re-implemented in new projects, instead of leveraging components from existing open-source projects.

Simulation tools for the Assessment of Emergency Management Processes
Posted on 12. Sep 2018; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose; Advisor(s): Thomas Osterland
Large scale disasters represent a major challenge for any medical service. Typically such disasters, be they founded in terrorism, natural or technical catastrophize, generate a significant number of casualties (MASCAL – Mass Casualty) with severe and unusual injury patterns. Many processes are supported by Standard Operating Procedures as common practice, but any catastrophe requires a change of processes due to the nature of the disaster and thus furnishes a major challenge for hospital operations. As of now, hospitals and medical services are designed for a specific workload that has been agreed among different stakeholders. Hence, processes and their resources are designed in light of best practices for patient care as well as anticipated workload.
Master
Interactive Support for Business Modelling
Posted on 21. Jun 2017; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose; Advisor(s): Thomas Osterland
A business model is an abstract model of the business of one or more cooperating organisations. It is a conceptual and architectural implementation of a business strategy and the foundation for the implementation of business processes and information systems. The research objective of this thesis is the design, implementation and evaluation of an interactive tool for the engineering of a business model.
Master

Master
Measuring coherence accross media in learning environments
Posted on 28. Sep 2017; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR, Prof. Dr. Marc Spaniol
Multimedia content based indexing delivered a lot of models for the analysis of multimedia materials. In modern educational platforms, e.g. MOOCs and self-regulated learning platforms. In consequence, multimedia materials are produced by educational designers but also by the learners during their learning processes. Coherence is a semantic measure for the local and global connectivity of e.g. sentences, paragraphs, videos, slides among others. Computer linguistics has provided impressive results for measuring the quality of writing, e.g. for automatic essay scoring. To measure the coherence of multimedia materials many computational methods reaching from natural language processing to machine learning needs to be combined in a common coherence model. Goal of this master thesis is to co-develop a coherence model for cross-media coherence and to prototypically combine these computational methods for a webinar.
Master

Blockchain-based Verification of Learning Analytics Data
Posted on 11. Dec 2019; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR, Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke; Advisor(s): Peter de Lange, M.Sc.
The goal of this thesis is to make collected Learning Analytics data, extracted from various Learning Management Systems, traceable and verifiable by keeping a reference to the monitored data on the las2peer Blockchain. The thesis should investigate related work in the domain of educational usage of Blockchain technology. The developed extension should integrate into the existing project's infrastructure and provide learners and their mentors/tutors with a tool to explore when and what kind of data was collected. By improving this traceability, we hope to increase the trust in the data collection (and its usage) from both learners and mentors.
Master
Automatic Provenance Generation for Serverless Computing
Posted on 14. Oct 2019; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Stefan Decker; Advisor(s): Lars Gleim, M. Sc.
In the context of this work, the student should extend the Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) paradigm of serverless computing with concepts for the automatic tracking of provenance information (information about data origins, uses, actors and involved processes over time, similar to a GIT revision history for data) and implement a corresponding framework using a readily available FaaS platform, such as Kubeless, OpenFaaS or the Fn Project.

Versioning and Access Management in Web-Based Collaborative Model-Driven Web Engineering
Modern collaborative development practices use agile principles to structure and organize the development process. The tool support for this includes source code management, with the large majority of development teams using Git. While collaboration patterns and access management of cooperation on source code is studied quite well, for MDWE (Model-Driven Web Engineering) processes, where collaboration happens on models instead of (only) source code, this is not yet the case. The thesis should investigate possibilities of versioning and access management for an existing MDWE platform.
Bachelor
Chat Assessments with Social Bots
Social Bots (software robots) are computer algorithms that automatically produce content and interact with humans on social media. This thesis will utilize chat interfaces, a social bot framework and learning management systems to conduct assessments for learning content of a lecture with the help of a social bot.

Persistent Association of Virtual Objects in Mixed Reality
Posted on 19. Feb 2020; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR; Advisor(s): Benedikt Hensen, M.Sc.
A mixed reality environment immerses users in a three-dimensional space. This allows them to organize digital content in the entire room, e.g. task cards in immersive project management. A natural way to sort related objects is by placing them close to each other. However, this kind of spatial co-location of objects is not enough to stress their relation to each other. If another user who is unaware of the association moves one of the objects, the spatial connection is lost. Hence, lines in 3D space are required which establish a visual and persistent connection between the objects. In a previous project, an initial system was implemented which uses straight lines to connect the objects. However, straight lines have some shortcomings since they intersect with obstacles between the two endpoints. A better connection system can use 3D curves to avoid the obstacles in an efficient way.

Posted on 07. Feb 2020; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR, Joachim Allgaier
Bachelor
Web-based Cluster Deployment for a Large-Scale Distributed Infrastructure
Nowadays, agile development processes use cloud container orchestration platforms for continuous integration, deployment and delivery. Technologies like Docker and Kubernetes are used here as the state-of-the-art cloud-native infrastructures the software is deployed on. However, deployment of heterogeneous service environments, developed by multiple teams with different technical proficiency levels, is not a trivial task. The thesis should investigate possibilities of automatic Web-based deployment of microservices in a Kubernetes cluster.

Analyzing distributed ledger data structures for the immutable persistence of transactions and tamper-secure execution of processes
Posted on 31. Aug 2018; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose; Advisor(s): Thomas Osterland
Often only noticed as a technology that enables the digital currency Bitcoin, blockchain is a novel protocol that allows the distributed and secure storing of information and untampered execution of program code in trust-less environments. As part of a broader range of technologies that allow the immutable storage of information in decentralized networks, where network participants build a consensus about the correctness of persisted information, the classical blockchain is only one specific implementation of distributed ledger technologies. Other ledger technologies are based on directed acyclic graphs (DAGs). Topic of this thesis is the exploration and implementation of a DAG based ledger in the existing blockchain framework Labchain (https://github.com/putschli/LabChain).
