DM2E and Europeana eCloud - Joris Klerkx

  1. 1. Cooperation DM2E & eCloud Athens, 28/11/2013 Joris Klerkx Research Expert, PhD. http://hci.cs.kuleuven.be @jkofmsk
  2. 2. Technology Enhanced Learning e-health Music Research 2.0 Removing friction between users and information
  3. 3. Europeana Cloud Unlocking Europe’s research via the Cloud Thanks for the invitation!
  4. 4. Best Practice Network Feb 2013 - Jan 2016 4.7 M €
  5. 5. Project Aims ✦ 1.1m new metadata records and 5m research focussed items ✦ Cloud based infrastructure ✦ Legal, strategic and economic issues ✦ Broad consensus on the advantages of a cloud based solution ✦ Digital platform, named Europeana Research ✦ tools and services for researchers that permit innovative research that exploits digitised content in Europeana
  6. 6. Understand how we can help researchers make use of Europeana content
  7. 7. User-Centered design Create useful & usable tools (for researchers in humanities and social sciences) Image from http://connectedsocialmedia.com/10134/inside-it-user-centered-it/
  8. 8. Know your users Study their workflow & habits Observe them Describe personas & scenarios Image from: http://mysteryboxes.wordpress.com/2011/02/28/personas-and-scenarios/
  9. 9. Researchers and their core problem (in humanities and social sciences) No appropriate & user-friendly tools for • finding and identifying relevant (digital) content • navigating content and research it • sharing annotations about the content and being aware of what colleagues and peers are doing.
  10. 10. Hide metadata, data model, schemas, etc. from researchers
  11. 11. Mash-up existing tools Tools are merely means-to-an-end to understand how we can help researchers Develop new tools
  12. 12. Every tool should be tailored to goals, users, …
  13. 13. Usefulness & Usability
  14. 14. Rapid Prototyping Paper prototypes Digital prototypes Quickly evaluate ideas in real-life scenarios Find problems in early stages of design http://www.wired.com/design/2013/09/appseed-transforms-your-sketches-into-app-prototypes/?mbid=social12565664 Products
  15. 15. Case-study I Hein and the ARIADNE Finder Find relevant content
  16. 16. Persona - Hein Hein is a post-doctoral researcher working on the history of philosophy, the history of biology and their interplay. In particular, he is interested in 18th century philosophical ideals of science and their influence on 18th century life sciences. His research has been recently focused on debates in philosophy of history and historiography, where he investigates and needs access to philosophical document and digital media corpora and their visualisations. !
  17. 17. Scenario - Hein Hein would like to enhance the web site of this group with a search interface that will allow the group to discover and navigate relevant digital resources that are coming from other large aggregators, such as: material on the history of philosophy collected by the Europeana aggregator), relevant literature that has been indexed and aggregated from various European national libraries through The European Library), as well as presentations, notes, slides, and other relevant educational resources that come from a global network of educational repositories called GLOBE.

  20. 20. Case-study II Paul and the wittgenstein Nachlass Navigate content.
  21. 21. Persona - Paul Paul is a post-doctoral researcher on philosophy at the Wittgenstein Archives at the University of Bergen (WAB) in Norway. The focus of his research is on the linguistic aspects of Wittgenstein's work. WAB has published 5,000 pages of the Wittgenstein Nachlass Open Access on the Web and developed a Wittgenstein domain ontology for these texts. WAB is part of a Framework 7 EU research project, called Digital Manuscripts to Europeana (DM2E), where Paul is involved in testing new technologies for collaborative work with semantic annotations online. !
  22. 22. Scenario - Paul Studying Wittgenstein’s work, would like to be able to look up various concepts and persons occurring in the texts. Furthermore, he would like to see those occurrences visualized on a timeline.
  23. 23. 54.537 entries
  24. 24. Can we navigate the wittgenstein nachlass by using a timeline?
  25. 25. version 1 http://ariadne.cs.kuleuven.be/wittgenstein/
  26. 26. version 2 http://ariadne.cs.kuleuven.be/wittgenstein2
  27. 27. version 3 http://localhost:3002/wittgenstein2/wittgenstein3
  28. 28. Case-study III John and TiNYARM Being aware of what colleagues and peers are doing.
  29. 29. Persona - John John is a PhD candidate in the doctoral school of human sciences at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. After finishing his master in arts, he just started to work pursuing a PhD degree in philosophy and history of education. During his master thesis work, he got familiar with tools used by researchers, such as: references managers (Mendeley and BibTeX) and digital libraries. !
  30. 30. Scenario - John John has a clear idea of his dissertation topic and started with the literature review about the subject. As he is new in the research community and he doesn’t know which colleagues from other European universities may be working on the same topic. Colleagues from his research team suggested him to use TiNYARM. His research group employs this tool to share publications read by them, to know what other research groups are reading, and his advisor uses it to suggest articles to his PhD students. As soon as he joined the tool, John saw a recent suggestion from Anna (a researcher from Germany) to one of his colleagues; this article was quite interesting for his research. He also opened the TiNYARM profile page of his advisor and skimmed the different papers his promoter read over the past months. John found some articles that were relevant for his research. Looking at his group activity, John got an idea of what everybody is interested in, based on the different papers they read or skimmed.
  31. 31. Activity Streams Paper reading Search activities
  32. 32. Activity Streams AED registrations
  33. 33. We take shortcuts. Find out what makes sense.
  34. 34. Question(s) to you. • What content is relevant for DM2E? • what tools are relevant for DM2E? • yours, ours and other • (how) can we involve DM2E users? • (how) can we evaluate our tools with DM2E? • • • usability? usefulness? Feedback on progress?
  35. 35. Thank you for your attention! joris.klerkx@cs.kuleuven.be @jkofmsk
