Abstract

Bi-directional and visual communication, which helps to enhance educative effectiveness through question-and-answer and/or discussion sessions, plays an important role in asynchronous e-Learning systems. For safety engineering education, communication should be facilitated by animated diagrams for better understanding. Automated detection of subject shifting and important postings is also required for smoother operation of asynchronous communication. The authors are developing an intelligent bulletin board system (iBBS) for use in an e-Learning program for integrated risk management. The present paper clarifies the functional requirements of the iBBS and proposes their implementation. Squeak eToys is used as a development environment for animated teaching materials, and a Web-based BBS program on which Squeak eToys programs can be uploaded has been developed. The application of natural language processing is proposed herein to achieve communication assistance. The present paper also demonstrates a prototype iBBS
