Final Report

Tuesday 15 December 2009 at 5:20 pm Academic paper collaboration is a large space involving many different researchers, collaborators, and reviewers. The paper-writing process involves many different major steps: choosing topics and collaborators, writing grant proposals, conducting research, writing/editing papers, and submitting the paper to journals for review. Team Fresh City decided to focus on the edits-and-revisions aspect of paper collaboration.

Technical and non-technical professors communicate edits and revisions through a number of different means: e-mail, phone, comments within a paper, MS Word track changes, SVN, etc. These communication methods frequently are unlinked to the physical paper. Keeping track of the ideas and problems that need to be fixed can become disorganized, especially given the busy life of faculty members. Currently, there is no program that centralizes collaborators and their communication about the paper.


Final Presentation

Tuesday 15 December 2009 at 5:07 pm On December 10, 2009 Team Fresh City gave a final presentation, where we discussed how we investigated the value of Tradmin during the course. This presentation can be found here: Final Presentation. (more)

Final Prototype Refinement

Tuesday 15 December 2009 at 5:03 pm

Through various value tests, Team Fresh City implemented a number of revisions to our high-fidelity prototype to improve its performance. These are documented in this section.


Usability Testing

Sunday 06 December 2009 at 2:22 pm In order to test the availability and utility of the features in Tradmin, a usability test was designed and performed.  As a result of this testing, some changes to the interface will be made as the final refinement. (more)
