  • This is a presentation to the Information and Communication Advisory Panel (ICAP) on its 2 nd Panel Meeting held at the CRIL. The presentation is based on an initial inventory and study of the IRRI web system (intranet and internet sites) which covers the following: staff involvement in web-related efforts across the Institute; inter-connection of content in the each of the sites; content generation processes and practices; relationships of research and non-research units as reflected in the “topology” of the current web system ; and Resource profile: cost implication, people and process management --Albert Borrero, 4 October 2007

  • a picture of our web Picture of our Web
  • IRRI Public Website [ irri.org ]
      • Information disjointed
      • Information interspersed and “broadcasted” to a wide range or to an overly narrow range of undefined users
      • Information appropriated as support service: less research delivery-oriented, not as much vigorously used at all levels in the Institute, more so by external users
  • IRRI Intranet [ irriwww ]
      • Organization of information follows physical organization
      • Functional information or data sets that are inter- related not apparent across organizational units
      • Static information and sharing, filing, and certain levels of content organization are only work activities that SharePoint supports
  • people networks
  • IRRI Web today and where it is going Adapted from the World Wide Web Consortium
  • how do we harness the Web to execute strategies?
  • user-centered experience (UX): "too much instruction -- not enough human construction." -
  • offer content and its function; build on user-defined functions; cultivate user-generated content
  • “… explanation takes place in the ear (actually the mind) of the receiver of the explanation, not in the mouth of the provider of the explanation.” “Participatory Explanation,” Institute for Human and Machine Cognition
  • the sum of all work we do: useful, findable , and engaging information
  • what we want to offer: content organized the way our communities can relate to and create from
  • a first stab to take on: obtain web applications that are every day tools for our users to carry through their activities and as aids for decision & action
  • emergence and speed: … .it is the interactions and relationships that create the interesting behavior > action > desired result Getting Real: Lower your cost of change
  • starting questions who are our users? what do they need? how will we use the web to fulfill our users’ needs? what content do we have? where do we start, with whom, and how do we organize useful content? how can we meet goals, outputs, and targets through the web as medium? what are our motivations? what resources do we need? how can we have a right mix of resources?
  • next steps and deliverables continuing user studies content inventory and audit: organize, piece together, focus on content generation and its inter-relatedness finding different facets of content seeking applications: functionality and usability prototype and co-create version 1 with users
  • way to go: partner for content creation; partner for information and communication technologies innovation up-take; partner for speed of results
