ASIS Midyear '98 Proceedings

Collaboration Across Boundaries:
Theories, Strategies, and Technology




Jeffrey D. Smith

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation


Smith will demonstrate EColabor, an active hypermedia for collaboratively elaborating documents. Ecolabor is designed to address problems in communication, agreement, and change management in document production, which are reportedly significant but rarely addressed. Based on the Inquiry Cycle model, EColabor supports stakeholders in systematically managing their documents. EColabor records all the processes of elaborating documents in shared hypermedia and provides comprehensive support for utilizing these records, applying multimedia and CSCW technologies to the document production process.


Demonstration presented at the 1998 midyear meeting of the Association for Information Science, May 17-20, 1998, Orlando, Florida.
