steph: checked on the mailing-list
12:08:50 [Adesina]
12:08:55 [Steph]
Hi Adesina
12:09:22 [Steph]
one person only answered
12:09:32 [Steph]
so we can stick with the current slots
12:09:34 [Adesina]
Hi been very busy with duties and research
12:09:40 [Steph]
Hi Adesina
12:09:44 [Steph]
12:10:12 [Steph]
Topic: Tools evaluation methodology
12:10:19 [Adesina]
Betty's work could be very important
12:11:19 [Steph]
stephanie: sent a mail to the group
12:11:33 [Zakim]
12:12:57 [Zakim]
12:13:54 [Stef]
Stef has joined #mw4d
12:14:19 [Stef]
christelle: how difficult is the tools ?
12:14:27 [Stef]
is it linux or windows based ?
12:14:32 [Adesina]
Is Steph diff from stef?
12:14:56 [Zakim]
12:15:41 [Zakim]
12:20:35 [Stef]
12:21:08 [Stef]
stephanie: broadening to end-user tools
12:21:24 [Stef]
rrs reader, browser
12:21:35 [Stef]
interesting tools for the community to recommend
12:21:56 [Stef]
most capable browsers on a given device is important
12:22:03 [christellescharff]
12:22:31 [Stef]
stephane: so that creates 2 categories
12:22:31 [betty]
My point of view, tools = software, devices, netwok for MW4D. As we know there are many pilot projects to analyse.
12:22:36 [Stef]
zakim, who is here ?
12:22:36 [Zakim]
On the phone I see Betty, Christelle, Stephanie, Stephane
12:22:37 [Zakim]
On IRC I see Stef, stephanierieger, betty, christellescharff, RRSAgent, Zakim, Adesina, maxf
12:23:09 [Stef]
betty: yes, different categories
12:23:44 [Stef]
developer, content provider, end-user
12:25:06 [Stef]
steph: difference ?
12:25:26 [Stef]
betty: different type of people: those providing content, those consuming content
12:25:33 [Stef]
12:25:35 [Stef]
12:25:55 [Stef]
tools only, or the impact of the tools ?
12:26:13 [Stef]
12:26:43 [Stef]
christelle: impact=how many users and so on
12:27:45 [christellescharff]
scope of use of the tool
12:29:00 [Stef]
Resolution: we should integrate tools targeted at different type of users, including those focused on end-user only (e.g. web browsers, rss reader, etc.)
12:29:10 [christellescharff]
12:30:43 [Stef]
steph: goal and audience of the document
12:32:25 [Steph]
Steph has joined #mw4d
12:32:44 [Steph]
christelle: a tool for decision making to select the right tools so for e.g. ngo
12:32:58 [Steph]
also for teachers to design projects for students
12:33:27 [stephanierieger]
12:34:28 [Steph]
stephanie: some tools works only if there is content available
12:34:31 [Steph]
like education tools
12:34:56 [Steph]
a content element should be considered
12:35:25 [betty]
12:36:28 [Steph]
stephane: some dimension might be overlapping ?
12:36:35 [Steph]
like content creation ?
12:36:45 [Steph]
christelle: what is important too ?
12:37:10 [Steph]
how to present ?
12:37:24 [Steph]
should be clear and organized
12:37:30 [Steph]
not easy.
12:39:41 [Steph]
stephane: we should perhaps not focus on analyzing tools but just the methodology
12:39:53 [Steph]
probably not focusing on the best tools in each category ?
12:40:05 [stephanierieger]
12:40:50 [Steph]
stephanie: at the first glance, i thought that we should recommend tools but now not sure
12:41:05 [Steph]
the way to present is key too
12:41:19 [Steph]
too much factor may kill usefullness
12:42:32 [betty]
12:43:24 [Steph]
stephanie: specific example: mobile testharness results: very hard to understand
12:43:53 [Steph]
the results should be mobile accessible also
12:45:34 [Steph]
steph: a repository surely, the document describing the methodlogy, i'm not sure
12:46:03 [Steph]
stephane: how could-we move on ?
12:46:10 [Steph]
ack stef
12:46:22 [Steph]
ack christellescharff
12:47:14 [Steph]
ack betty
12:47:28 [Steph]
betty, how we are going to present document ?
12:47:33 [betty]
Are we going to include some practitioners or potential users could be audience of the document? E.g. in m-agriculture, some smart farmers could read the document, which inspires them to try the tools analysed in the document. But they need more practical documents than lecturers or students.
12:47:46 [Steph]
betty: are the potential users of tools are audience ?
12:48:11 [Steph]
betty: e.g. farmers ?
12:50:45 [shwetank]
shwetank has joined #mw4d
12:51:58 [Steph]
better: easier access for simpler users, more complex access to smarter/advanced users
12:52:47 [Adesina]
mHealth applications could be the main driver for mobile web
12:53:34 [Zakim]
12:54:09 [Steph]
12:54:29 [Steph]

12:56:24 [betty]

12:56:27 [Steph]
