Abstract [en]

Sharing documents with others and getting comments on them are frequent activities for most authors. We present Col-lecci6;1A web-based asynchronous, groupware tool that supports sharing and annotation of documents in small or medium sized-groups. Eash document is associated with its own space for commenting, in which a text-based dialouge can be formed among the participants. A site in Col-lecci6 is called a domain, and consists of a collection of documents and a set of comments in connection with each document. Case studies of the use of the system have shown that a domain is often complex as a discourse enviroment, as the system supports several parallel document discussions. We present a visualization model, Domain Interactivity Diagram (DID), as an aid for analysing patterns of annotation and referncing in these dialouges. This model is especially adapted to document-centred discourse, and highlights the role of the author in communication about a document. One aim of the DID is to show the extent to which documents he/she has commented on. A more ambitious aim has been to support to coherence in the discourse developed within a domain.
