SOBOLEO is a web-based system to help users share knowledge and experience more easily. Users collaboratively create a topic list and use this to tag people and web resources. This list is used as background knowledge during searches. SOBOLEO consists of 4 main parts:


  • Search: A search engine that searches through tagged resources using the topic list as background knowledge.
  • Browse: An interface to browse through the topic list and the tagged resources.
  • Tag: An interface to add people and webpages to the index. You can use topics from the topic list and add new tags to tag web resources and people.
  • Edit: A collaborative real time editor for the topic list - this means that you can see the changes that other people make to the topic in real time. Please note that this is a topic list collaboratively edited by everyone.
