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)
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 such as laptops, PDA’s and now smart-phones. New communities within such venues as virtual chat rooms, Forums, e-classrooms videoconferences, discussion… (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.
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)
Poor design criteria are responsible for wasting computer users time and are a hindrance to effective interaction with human centred systems. It is important that before any design of an interface is attempted an in-depth analysis of task and user needs must be undertaken. Questions need to be asked such as “What takes place during interaction between the… (More)
In a previous paper the CSCR domain was defined. Here this is taken to the next stage where we consider the design of a particular Collaborative Research Environment to support Students and Supervisors CRESS. Following the CSCR structure a preliminary design for CRESS has been established and a portal framework analysis is undertaken in order to determine… (More)
Although the areas of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), CSCW, and CSCL are now relatively well established, the related field of Computer Supported Collaborative Research (CSCR) is new and little understood. An analysis of the principles and issues behind CSCR is undertaken with a view to determining precisely its nature and scope and to delineate it… (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.
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.
