Structuring dimensions for collaborative systems evaluation
TLDR
This research work presents a detailed framework to evaluate collaborative systems according to given variables and performance levels and assumes that evaluation is an evolving process during the system lifecycle. Expand
Mobile computing in urban emergency situations: Improving the support to firefighters in the field
TLDR
A low-cost mobile collaborative application which may be used in emergency situations to overcome most of the firefighters' communication problems and allows ad hoc communication, decisions support and collaboration among firefighters in the field using mobile devices. Expand
A first step to formally evaluate collaborative work
TLDR
An initial attempt to formaZly evaluate performance measures related to CSCW applications and proposes a specific heuristic to the case when many people search for the same information, increasing the recall and precision of the answer. Expand
Reviewing the quality of awareness support in collaborative applications
TLDR
A checklist for developers to review awareness in collaborative software and the obtained results suggest that the checklist is adequate to provide helpful hints that may be used to improve an application's awareness support. Expand
Evaluating Collaborative Learning Processes using System-based Measurement
TLDR
Direct system-based measures based on data produced by a collaborative learning system during the collaboration process are presented, and it is suggested that these measures can be enhanced by also considering participants’ perceptions of the process. Expand
The Iceberg Effect: Behind the User Interface of Mobile Collaborative Systems
TLDR
A characterization of mobile collaboration and a framework that specifies a list of general requirements to be considered during the conception and design of a system in order to increase its probability of success are introduced. Expand
A reusable structural design for mobile collaborative applications
TLDR
A reusable architecture is presented which helps modeling the communication and coordination services required by mobile collaborative applications to support collaboration among users. Expand
Selecting Computing Devices to Support Mobile Collaboration
TLDR
An evaluation framework is proposed that helps developers to identify the type of device that can be used to support mobile collaboration in specific work contexts and the results of the analysis are compared with the empirically observed suitability. Expand
Integrating Service-Oriented Mobile Units to Support Collaboration in Ad-hoc Scenarios
TLDR
The concept of Service-Oriented Mobile Unit (SOMU) is introduced, an autonomous software infrastructure running on a computing device that is able to be integrated to ad-hoc networks and it can interoperate with other mobile units in ad-Hoc collaboration scenarios. Expand
Evaluation Methods for Groupware Systems
TLDR
A survey of evaluation methods for groupware systems is presented and the proposed comparison criteria represent a framework to evaluate and classify new evaluation methods. Expand
