Abstract

Student projects m higher education are used to help students prepare themselves for meeting the challenges they face in real world projects. However, the dynamic nature of a project had caused it to have ill-defined tasks during the planning process. The use of emails, face-to-face meetings and project reports to manage student projects do not appear efficient. The implementation of X CHIPS (a cooperative hypermedia system with flexible process support) in the EXTERNAL project has suggested that this system is able to provide efficient project management. This dissertation aims to answer the research question: "How a cooperative hypermedia based flexible process support approach is able to support project supervisors and students in managing student project". A case study approach has been adopted to investigate this phenomenon. In order to provide compelling evidence to support the answer to our research question, data from different sources was collected. In addition, triangulation was used to increase the reliability of the study. Our findings from the case study demonstrated that the cooperative hypermedia based flexible process support approach can support project supervisors and students to create, monitor and adapt project plans cooperatively. Project supervisors and students can identify emerging problems from the project plan and discuss issues in project meetings. Furthermore, this approach also supports meeting process modifications and unplanned meeting process. Project meetings between project supervisors and students are facilitated by synchronous and asynchronous cooperation. Therefore, this approach provides flexible ways of solving emergent problems in a timely manner. No previous studies on using cooperative hypermedia based flexible process support in supporting student project management have been found. Therefore, this study can be taken as a pilot study that is able to provide invaluable knowledge to researchers who are interested in this field of study.
