NetWorker: A Practical Web-Based Tool to Support the Collect-Compare-Choose Cycle
An earlier paper has covered the development of a paper prototype of NetWorker, a tool designed to facilitate a Web usage referred to as the Collect-Compare-Choose cycle. Here we describe an initial implementation of the tool, a small scale evaluation, and modifications that were implemented subsequent to the evaluation. NetWorker is a PC application with a single window containing multiple web browsers and a text pane. It allows users to download and view pages from multiple web-sites in parallel, to drag text from the web pages into a working area (the WorkPad) and to edit and rearrange information within the WorkPad. The browsers and the WorkPad can be rearranged in various ways to make optimum use of the available screen space.
