In a previous paper the CSCR domain was defined. Here this is taken to the next stage where the design of a particular Collaborative Research Environment to support Students and Supervisors (CRESS) is considered. Following the CSCR structure this paper deals with an analysis of 13 collaborative working environments to determine a preliminary design for… (More)
Under consideration are the general set of Human computer Interaction (HCI) and Educational principles from prominent authors in the field and the construction of a system for evaluating Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) with respect to the application of these HCI and Educational Principles. A frequency analysis of principles is used to obtain the most… (More)
The general set of HCI and Educational principles are considered and a classification system constructed. A frequency analysis of principles is used to obtain the most significant set. Metrics are devised to provide objective measures of these principles and a consistent testing regime devised. These principles are used to analyse Blackboard and Moodle. 1.… (More)
It is suggested that a new area of CSCR (Computer Supported Collaborative Research) is distinguished from CSCW and CSCL and that the demarcation between the three areas could do with greater clarification and prescription.
The History of HCI is briefly reviewed together with three HCI models and structure including CSCW, CSCL and CSCR. It is shown that a number of authorities consider HCI to be a fragmented discipline with no agreed set of unifying design principles. An analysis of usability criteria based upon citation frequency of authors is performed in order to discover… (More)
A Survey of the principal literature on Human Centred Design reveals the four most referenced principles. These are discussed with reference to the application of a particular website, and a user survey is constructed based upon the four principles.
The explosion of people networking in cyberspace, disseminating terabytes of information, is being promoted through the use of broadband, bluetooth technology, and wireless mobile computing facilities. New communities within such venues as virtual chat rooms discussion groups, newsgroups etc are being created daily and even hourly. This is raising issues of… (More)
This paper provides a general technical overview of the Multimedia Home Platform (MHP) specifications. MHP is a generic interface between digital applications and user machines, whether they happen to be set top boxes, digital TV sets or Multimedia Pc's. MHP extends the DVB open standards. Addressed are MHP architecture, System core, and MHP Profiles. 1.… (More)
A number of papers have been reviewed in the areas of HCI, CSCW, CSCL. These have been analyzed with a view to extract the ideas relevant to a consideration of user interactions in a collaborative on line laboratory which is being under development for use in the ITO BSc course at Southampton University. The construction of new theoretical models is to be… (More)
Introduction Encryption has been used as a method of protecting computer privacy since 1977. Secret communication plays an increasing role in organizations especially banking, industry, commerce, telecommunication etc. The basic idea of encryption is to modify the network traffic in such a way that its content can be reconstructed only by a legal recipient.… (More)
