Coordinating a geographically dispersed research project using social

1,134 views

Published on

This presentation was delivered to a group of researchers who were about to embark on a geographically dispersed research project.

In the end the "proposal for openness" was rejected mostly because of privacy concerns around the collected data. The wordpress blog will live on, and is expected to be used for more for open reporting later in the project.
