Lab 3 Synchronous writing collaboration with Aspects
Introduction 6/2 - Week 6-7 2002
To experience participation in a joint writing task, using a synchronous
collaborative writing tool.
Basic familiarity with the Apple Macintosh environment.
Aspects 1.7, developed by Grouplogic for the Macintosh.
The lab assignment is carried out in groups of 2-4 students.
We meet in the sixth floor in the same block where the lectures take place,
room 1642 . Then I will take you to the room where you will work (in the
same building). You have to come to NADA because Aspects, the program that
we will used, runs in a LAN. Also it has a license.
You will be assigned to a specific communication mode, using either text
communication only, or both text and telephone communication. There will
be no face-to-face meeting between you and your partners.
A writing task will be assigned to the group. One and a half hour will
be allowed for the task.
Write a paper, discussing the given writing task. Print out the text produced
every 30 minutes. After the session, print out the final text and the chatting
record. All these documents might be useful for you and us to see how the
document and discussion have evolved with time.
