Research theme: Information
Research discipline: Information Systems
Research area
Online Collaborative Design: This project is researching aspects of how people collaborate and reach consensus in domains that rely heavily on digital media assets, such as video, illustrations, and music.
Current funded projects include a pilot implementation of a system to store and manage creative student works from concept through to assessment. It will assist their peers and supervisors to provide feedback through collaborative annotations.
Interactive visualisation for communication and collaboration: The aim of this project is to develop a framework for integrating visualisation with unified communication and collaboration. The framework will facilitate continuous improvement initiatives, increases in individual productivity through IT enabled, collaborative work methods, improved training options and faster acceptance of new business processes.
