Abstract

The purpose of this research project is to create a virtual environment where the users can exchange ideas and discuss any topic of their interest. This will be done by using Python language to design and develop a website and to create a chat room for all users. The targeted goal is to provide a cost-efficient way to solve problems and save time when dealing with users' questions and answers. At SUNY Buffalo State, many departments use the Blackboard management system to regulate classes. The section known as the discussion board is used for students to ask questions and communicate with professors regarding any concerns they have. But what if there was a chat, which went ‘live’ at a specified time? What if there were different topics that students wanted to target and just ask questions about a certain issue? This is an example of how “The Students’ Live Blog” can be effective in any college campus. The Students’ Live Blog will be primarily programmed with Python language and will also make use of Java, Visual Basic, C++ as well as C# programming languages. This should be able to bring together students from all over Buffalo State College and help get them involved in this multi-person virtual chatroom experience.
