  • A distributed, self-adaptive model of hypermedia system

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):167 - 176 vol.6

    We discuss a distributed user model architecture suitable for hypermedia systems. In this architecture, the user knowledge is spread over a collection of autonomous actors, cooperating in a way which provides, through collaborative activities, a global, dynamic user model. Separate duties and knowledge, combined with asynchronous and concurrent processing, augment the adaptivity and the efficiency... View full abstract»

    Documents play an important role in the public sector. Contemporary ICT (e.g. workflow management systems, image processing, electronic document management and electronic document interchange) offers possibilities to support organizational processes which handle large volumes of documents, enabling new organizational structures. In an inter-organizational setting this may result in a shift of boun... View full abstract»

    We present a methodology for mapping relational database management systems (RDBMS) to hypertext, based on the hypertext model GHMI that we are developing. Applying hypertext functionality enhances the effectiveness of RDBMS for users. We illustrate the domain mapping between RDBMS and hypertext through bridge law examples which map database objects to GHMI components, and database relationships a... View full abstract»

    Hypermedia design is usually ad hoc. Whereas the original Relationship Management Methodology (RMM) provides a structured approach to design and implementation of hypermedia applications, it has limitations that constrain the usability of the kinds of applications it can construct. This paper provides extensions to RMM that enable it to model a much richer class of applications, thereby making the... View full abstract»

    The World Wide Web is growing quickly and being applied to many new types of communications. As a basis for studying organizational communications, Yates and Orlikowski (1992) proposed using genres. They defined genres as, “typified communicative actions characterized by similar substance and form and taken in response to recurrent situations”. They further suggested that communication...

    The introduction of new information technology can be a rationale for reconsidering what digital products organisations produce and reconsidering how work should be organised around the production of artefacts. A pilot study covering three World Wide Web publishing cases is presented. Through a holistic view on documents, work and technology, the three cases are described. The conclusion of the ar...

    The paper discusses problems inherent in retrieval from multimedia information systems. These problems stem from the diverse and inherently unstructured nature of multimedia. We examine some problems in this area, identify some notable successes, and present a set of user interface design principles for creating effective interfaces to multimedia information. We then discuss information retrieval ... View full abstract»

    For certain classes of documents, the transition to digital form will largely be determined by the implicit contracts that are written based on the fact that these documents exist. Accounting source records (i.e. invoices etc.) constitute an interesting case. They are archived for audit trail purposes, but seldom utilized after they have been filed. However, a significant structure of implicit and... View full abstract»

  • Visualizing stylistic variation

    Texts vary not only by topic, but by style; indeed, often the variation between texts `about the same thing' can be just as noticeable as the variation between texts `about different things'. Some facets of this variation are quite easy to detect, and quite predictable when applied to categorization of texts by genre, functional style, or-tentatively-quality. Making use of such variation in a retr... View full abstract»

    The digital version of the newspaper broadsheet is the basis of an evolving genre capable of supporting more than just the presentation of electronic news. The phrase, “broadsheet genre”, refers to both the broadsheet form and the characteristics of the content presented in this form. When the content is electronic news, it is not unlike a print newspaper supplemented with video and ra... View full abstract»

    Recent work on communication genres explores some ways in which technology enables and constrains communicative action (Orlikowski and Yates, 1994). We elaborate the notion of genre by incorporating the quality of hardness or softness evident in the informing practices that produce and reproduce genres. Including an awareness of information hardness and softness in communication genres, provides a... View full abstract»

    Most word processors have facilities for styles and document templates. These mechanisms may help maintain typographic consistency while editing, and they may support document exchange and conversion. Document conversion is of special importance to electronic publishing. Our own experience suggests that there are problems with the use of styles and templates. A sample of documents drawn from three... View full abstract»

    The discipline of narratology has long recognized the need to classify documents as instances of different text types. We have discovered that classification is as applicable to hypermedia as it is to any other document presentation. Following the work of S. Chatman (1978; 1990), we consider three such text types: description, argument and narrative. The goal of a description document is to descri... View full abstract»
