    • 1. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 Jana Schumann, Tanja Buttler & Stephan Lukosch Supporting Asynchronous Workspace Awareness by Visualizing the Story Evolution in Collaborative Storytelling Presenter: Jana Schumann Presented Paper is based on a Bachelor Thesis CRIWG 2010 Maastricht, The Netherlands, September 22, 2010
    • 2. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 • Collaboration defines a social and interactive process, where people work together to achieve a shared goal • Storytelling is a human way to share knowledge and experiences • Development of common understanding within a group  Organizations can use storytelling e.g. for knowledge management. Collaborative Storytelling 2
    • 3. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 • Groupware system, which supports collaborative, audio-based storytelling • Supports groups in creating non-linear stories • Stories are visualized in a story graph, which displays the alternative story threads  Problem: Resulting asynchronous growth of shared data makes it difficult to trace the story graph evolution. Collaborative Storytelling in CASTing 3
    • 4. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 • Possible Solution: Offering asynchronous awareness support • Workspace Awareness is the up-to-the-moment understanding of another person’s interaction with the shared workspace • Provide users with the necessary data, so that they understand the recent activities in CASTing • Enhance asynchronous awareness by means of traceability support Assumptions 4
    • 5. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 • Development of a prototype in the CASTing web portal that visualizes how the collaborative story evolved over time • Visualization helps group members assess who has modified the shared story, what exactly has been modified and when it has been modified • Evaluation of the approach  Hypothesis: The visualization of the story graph evolution will enable group members to trace activities in the workspace. Research Approach 5
    • 6. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 • StoryMapper • (+) Provides some meta-information • (+) Shows which user created a node • (-) No focus on specific time periods or parts of the story graph • Voicethread • (+) User can add multimedia comments to single artifacts • (-) No filter mechanisms to support evolution understanding  State of research: Currently no sufficient support for raising awareness of the asynchronous growth of a story graph. Related Work 6
    • 7. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 • R1: Meta-information which allows users to assess who made any changes, and when those changes were made • R2: Record awareness information • R3: Allow users to focus on a specific time period • R4: Allow users to focus on a specific group member • R5: Focus on the development of a linear story Requirements 7
    • 8. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 Prototype 8
    • 9. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 Example 9
    • 10. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 • Exploration of 3 Questions in a Lab-Experiment • Does the visualization make it clear… • …Who changed what in the story graph? • …When something was changed in the story graph? • …Who in general is working in the story graph? • Setup of the Experiment • 10 voluntary participants • Age 22 to 28 • 7 male, 3 female • No experience with the storytelling technique • 14 tasks • Survey Evaluation 10
    • 11. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 • Participants were able to recognize… • What was changed • Who changed it • When it was changed • Who in general is involved into the project  Result: Users can acquire workspace awareness by accessing information about previous work of other users and to follow the development process of the story graph Results of the Evaluation 11
    • 12. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 12 Implications • Visualization approach can be used for other group support systems • Advancement of groupware with non-linear processes • Visualizing the evolution of a project supports awareness • Also useful for e.g. text, images, ideas, …
    • 13. / 14September 22, 2010 Jana Schumann – CRIWG 2010 13 Further Research • Explore impact of the visualization on the collaboration between users • Faster integration of new users? • Better coordination and communication between users? • Simplifying of communication?
