Rich collaboration on the move: Talk to your mobile audio wiki Mobile
Speech collaboration
NGMAST 2009 - 3rd International Conference on Next Generation Mobile Applications, Services and Technologies English 2009 Wikis are proven to be simple yet efficient tools for asynchronous collaboration where multiple users can collaboratively edit shared web documents. While desktop users are comfortable with text-based wikis, the latest developments of 3G networks and smart phones begs the question what is the appropriate model for wiki collaboration on mobile devices which can accommodate mobile user behavior? The properties of mobile collaborative work practices and mobile computing technical constraints require a different model for interacting with wikis. In this paper, we introduced a new wiki model which utilizes speech, rather than text, as the medium for collaboration. Thus users listen or talk to contribute to a shared, marked up audio clip, with their existing mobile devices. An evaluation of system usability and user acceptance of such speech-based wiki-style collaboration has been conducted. The evaluation indentified that our approach does indeed help mobile users to effectively participate in collaborative tasks. 0 0
An audio wiki supporting mobile collaboration SAC English 2008 Wikis have proved to be very effective collaboration and knowledge management tools in large variety of fields thanks to their simplicity and flexible nature. Another important development for the internet is the emergence of powerful mobile devices supported by fast and reliable wireless networks. The combination of these developments begs the question of how to extend wikis on mobile devices and how to leverage mobile devices' rich modalities to supplement current wikis. Realizing that composing and consuming through auditory channel is the most natural and efficient way for mobile device user, this paper explores the use of audio as the medium of wiki. Our work, as the first step towards this direction, creates a framework called Mobile Audio Wiki which facilitates asynchronous audio-mediated collaboration on the move. In this paper, we present the design of Mobile Audio Wiki. As a part of such design, we propose an innovative approach for a light-weight audio content annotation system for enabling group editing, versioning and cross-linking among audio clips. To elucidate the novel collaboration model introduced by Mobile Audio Wiki, its four usage modes are identified and presented in storyboard format. Finally, we describe the initial design for presentation and navigation of Mobile Audio Wiki. 0 0
Pocket RikWik: A mobile wiki supporting online and offline collaboration AusWeb 2006: 12th Australasian World Wide Web Conference English 2006 Wikis are a popular collaboration technology. They support the collaborative editing of web pages through a simple mark-up language. The wikipedia site is perhaps the best example of how wikis can be used. There are lots of different wikis, all with their own special extended features over the basic collaborative editing of web pages. In this paper we investigate how wikis can be made mobile; that is how wiki forms of collaborative editing can be achieved through mobile devices such as smart phones. Mobile devices are becoming ubiquitous and powerful. Thus it is advantageous for people to get the benefits of wikis in a mobile setting. However, mobile devices present their own challenges such as limited screen size, bandwidth and battery life; they also have intermittent connectivity. We have investigated and built a prototype mobile wiki which addresses these issues and which enables collaboration through mobile devices. The system comprises a cut down wiki which runs on the mobile device. This communicated with a main central wiki to cache pages for off line use. This hoarding process also enables new pages to be created. On re-connection edited and new pages are synchronized with a main wiki server. Communication and hence hoarding is adaptive depending on the characteristics of the mobile device. When sitting in a powered cradle, eager downloading and synchronization of pages is supported. During mobile operation, pages are cached lazily on demand to minimize power use and to save the limited and expensive bandwidth. Finally a pluggable page rendering engine enables pages to be rendered in different ways to suit different sized screens. This enables simple collaborative working whilst on and offline through smart mobile devices. The prototype system has been implemented using .NET. © 2006. Wei-Che Huang. 0 0
RikWik: An extensible XML based Wiki Collaborative system
Web services
Proceedings - 2005 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems English 2005 Wiki Wiki Webs provide a simple form of collaboration between multiple users using standard web browsers. Their popularity stems from their easy access and straightforward editing manner. Wikis are often used to support collaboration in research. We present a Wiki Wiki Clone, RikWik, which uses XML to provide a simple, secure platform for collaboration. In addition to supporting standard Wiki features, RikWik also provides a robust security system, provides a Web Service front-end and allows custom page types to better suit specific collaborative endeavors. RikWik has a plug-in architecture to easily allow end users to extend the platform. Thus RikWik provides an extensible collaboration platform. It is in day to day use at QUT. 0 0
