In Cooper, part of the student support will be provided by a Question Answering application in the form of a webservice. Question Answering allows a user to use the content of project document as input to find related documents as well as related experts. Latent Semantic Analysis as an underlying technique is briefly discussed followed by a description of our Latent Semantic Analysis engine and the software architecture that was developed. Issues for further development are also mentioned. The final section contains a specific case study of an environment in which an implementation is planned.
