This course presents computer-supported collaborative systems, which allow a group of people, whether they are collocated or not, to work together while sharing computer artifacts. The course covers groupware and mediated interaction, including a state-of-the-art of interactive systems for coordination, communication and collaboration with groups of users across time and space. The course also covers Collaborative Virtual Environments, a research area at the intersection of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, teleoperation, high-bandwidth communication, human-computer interaction and collaborative teleworking. Finally it covers recent developments such as social networks and crowdsourcing.
The project must be done in a group of 1, 2 or 3 students, and will be presented orally as well as in a short report.
The project can be a programming project OR a design project.
Programming project: Program a small collaborative tool, or extend an existing one.
You can replicate or extend an existing tool, and you can use existing libraries, but you must create your own code for a significant part of the collaborative features.
For your project proposal, prepare 3 slides that describe (i) your concept, (ii) the features you plan to implement in order of priority, (iii) the tools you'll use to develop it.
The 2-3 pages final report must describe what you have done and what problems you ran into.
The final oral presentation must include a live demo of the software.
Design project: Design a novel collaborative tool or service, or a new collaborative feature for an existing tool or service. You must follow the design process from Wendy's Design of Interactive Systems class, and create a video prototype of your design.
For your project proposal, prepare 3 slides that describe (i) your concept, (ii) related papers/systems you have reviewed, (iii) what is novel about your concept.
The 2-3 pages report must describe and justify your design.
The final oral presentation must include the video prototype.
Enter the names of the project members with a short description of the project in this spreadsheet.
Wait until you get a green light in the spreadsheet by one of the instructors.
If you get a yellow or red light, revise your project, reset the color and wait for new feedback.
Once you have a green light, develop your project.
Prepare and present your project proposal (3 slides) as described above.
Write a short report (2-3 pages) as described above.
Prepare a short presentation and demo of your project (5-10 minutes), as described above.
The project proposal slides in pdf format must be turned in by noon, Monday 29 November 2021, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. You'll have 5 min to present it ONLINE (new!!!) in class on Wed 1 December.
The project report must be turned in by noon, Monday 13 December 2021, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
The project presentations will take place on Wednesday 15 December 2021, from 1:30pm to 4:30pm in room E 210. You will have 5-10 minutes to present your project and answer questions.
