A Collaborative Property-Based Note Management System

  title={A Collaborative Property-Based Note Management System},
  author={Jonathan Huang},
NotePals is an ink-based, collaborative note sharing application built on top of a property-based document management system. NotePals users write notes in their own handwriting on a personal digital assistant (PDA) or CrossPad. These notes are then synchronized with a central repository and can be accessed and shared via an online web application. The system supports both the traditional folder-based hierarchy for document organization, as well as creating and using customized properties for… Expand

Exploring property-based document organization in a collaborative note-sharing system
This paper has designed and evaluated a low-fidelity prototype on a collaborative note-sharing system based on the idea of an organization system using document properties and confirmed the applicability of this concept to the task of managing notes. Expand

Making Sharing Pervasive: Ubiquitous Computing for Shared Note Taking
This work has developed note-taking applications that run on inexpensive personal digital assistants and other ink-based capture devices, such as the paper-based CrossPad™, and experience with using NotePals has shown that shared notes can add value to meeting, conference, and class records. Expand
