Social Collaboration Principles that Guide the Design of the Organic Data Science Platform

STATUS: This section is still under development

Starting Communities

  1. Create mechanisms to match people to activities
    Partly addressed by: Task Representation
  2. Highlight more active tasks
  3. Inactive tasks should have „expected active times“

Encouraging Contributions through Motivation

  1. Make it easy to see and track needed contributions
    Partly addressed by: Progress Tracking
  2. Ask specific people on tasks of interest to them
    Addressed by: User Tracking
  3. Simple tasks with challenging goals are easier to comply with
    Addressed by: Task Representation
  4. Specify deadlines for tasks, while leaving people in control
    Partly addressed by: Explorer Navigation
  5. Give frequent feedback specific to the goals
  6. Requests coming form leaders lead to more contributions
  7. Publicize that others have complied with request
    Partly addressed by: Worklist
  8. People are more willing to contribute: 1) when group is small, 2) when commited to the group, 3) when their contributions are unique

Encouraging Commitment

  1. Cluster members to help them identify with the community
    Addressed by: User Tracking
    Partly addressed by: Explorer Navigation
  2. Give subgroups a name and a tagline
  3. Put subgroups in the context of a larger group
    Addressed by: Explorer Navigation
    Partly addressed by: Task Representation, Worklist
  4. Interdependent tasks increase commitment and reduce conflict
    Addressed by: Timeline
    Partly addressed by: Task Representation, Worklist
