Abraham Valdez Webmaster/Content Manager Creates, designs, and posts information for the group's Wiki page. Create visuals and work with Wikipedia Collaborator to create dimension comparison table. In addition, maintains the accuracy of the groups content.
Sean Wilke Primary Researcher/Analyst Researches project tools and creates the dimension table while acquiring other researched information from team members. This person also proofreads the document on the group's Wiki page for grammar or spelling errors.
Anna Lesniak Wikipedia Collaborator Organizes researched tools for the initial creation of the group's Wikipedia document. This person also does some research on the tools chosen to be compared on the dimensions table.

Also, will provide information to the Webmaster. This person would be the main person in charge of the creating the presentation for class.

 

Meeting Minutes:

 

This section will summarizes, via MS Word attachment, our group's meetings. Although our group partakes in both informal frequent chats via Skype and formal scheduled meetings, this section will focus on the latter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Communication Tools used by Team Members:

 

  1. Skype
  2. Electronic Mail
  3. WebEx
  4. agreeAdate
  5. InstantConference 

 

Dimension Chart and Description:

 

This section is broken down into two parts:

 

  1. Rough Outline of presentation and application dimensions/matrix
  2. Finalized Dimension/Matrix Chart

 

Part 1:

Our initial process was to input all ideas into one grid for the tools we researched. These ideas were labeled as "categories" that resulted in 12-13 dimension categories.

The ideal process was to record these rough ideas and redefine them into a dimension-specific ThinkTank-like process.

Dimension Grid:

 

  Usability (Low Demand) Usability (High Demand)
Same Place (Low Demand) Use Case 1 Use Case 2
Same Place (High Demand) Use Case 3 Use Case 4

 

Presenters, Inc. have divided their dimensions into four distinct sections:

 

[1] Usability (low demand)/Same Place (low demand)

[2] Usability (high demand)/Same Place (low demand)

[3] Usability (low demand)/Same Place (high demand)

[4] Usability (high demand)/Same Place (high demand)

 

Eachsegment has unique characteristics and are all integral in understanding the

depth of these collaborative technologies.

 

[Use Case 1] Not everyone needs to be present for the presentation and the

tool is not relatively user-friendly, requiring training for effective results.

[Use Case 2] Not everyone needs to be present, however, the tool must be

easy to use and require minimal training.

[Use Case 3] Everyone needs to be present and the tool is not relatively

user-friendly, requiring training for effective results.

[Use case 4] Everyone has to be present and the tool must be easy, requiring

minimal training.

You have only listed 8 or so products and I know there are more than that in the space. You didn't need to evaluate everything that is out there, but I had hoped you would find many more.
Please be sure everything is accessible directly (either on the page or via a link to another page -- no .doc files)

This is a difficult topic to get differing requirements, but I think you did a good job. Please post the use material directly to the PBwiki (rather than just posting a .doc file).

You have found some dimensions and rank ordered them but what you need to do now is find the interactions between your dimensions. How to they relate to one another and how do they influence one another? This will result in clear Use Cases.
