title Transparency In Information Architecture Enabling large scale creative collaboration over Internet in architectural education
source Connecting the Real and the Virtual - design e-ducation [20th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-0-8] Warsaw (Poland) 18-20 September 2002, pp. 174-179
summary This paper presents some results of a quantitative process analysis of two types of courses in Computer Aided Architectural Design that were taught using database-driven online environments. It focuses on the performance of these online environments as information structures, designed to accommodate the presentation and the peer-to-peer exchange of design information for relatively large groups of between 60 and 150 participants. Using the database records to reconstruct the processes, three different quantitative analyses are described. Their results indicate that for these projects the webenvironments were successful in enhancing peer-to-peer learning and that they promoted a more objective assessment of the submitted works. The study also looks at the effect that the environments themselves had on the process. Finally it makes some conclusions about how such environments must be designed to handle the dynamic display of design data in a way that is transparent to the users.
