Abstract: The discussion of system design through a network as part of the cooperative system development process is increasingly common. In our university, system development education for novices is also done through a network. However, the usefulness of discussion regarding system development for novices is limited by various resolved problems that remain after discussion and the inability of novices to discuss these matters in a comprehensive way. We propose a discussion model designed for novices that will enable smooth navigation during such discussions. This model is based on state transition using discussion states and discussion comment categories. This paper mainly describes analyses of discussions on cooperative system development, discussion model design and preliminary evaluation with our prototype.
