Community testing report 22nd July

This short report was sent to CATALYST and contains a summary of our process and findings, as well as recommendations to improve the tool, based on the discussions, events and content in this group.

Thanks to @Hazem and @Ruxandra for all their work in this project!

Supplemental for documentation discussion

@Alberto This is just a unfinished draft that I started a while ago, but it could help in understanding one aspect that of where I'm coming from in this context. The larger vision and context is not so much reflected in here, but I can add that.
@brenoust Perhaps also marginally interesting for you. Sorry I did not have the time to reply in the other thread yet. Also sorry for my French, it is not intended as an insult. ;)

Mark the stewardship conversation for import into Assembl

@Luca Mearelli has given Benoit of Imagination4People some sample data, but it makes sense he gets the real stewardship conversation data for import into Assembl. The reasoning is: we already have a professional ethnographer's point of view on that conversation. It makes sense to compare it with a harvester's point of view.

So, @Ruxandra, here is what I am asking you to do.

[Edgesense] Compile first set of questions we want to answer

The installation of Edgesense using the Edgeryders database lives here. @Alberto and @Matthias can confirm this is the version we will be using in the following months.

I think it would be a good start to familiarize ourselves with the tool and launch some key questions worth answering in this community testing.

We could then follow up on those questions in two events:

Make a short video for Catalyst team

We were asked by the CATALYST team to send in our take on community testing, answering the following questions. They will compile a video with all communities involved in this process, so I said why not. Will be sending it end of this week. @Hazem and @Ruxandra in particular, if you have thoughts on what would be interesting answers (see #5) jump in, if not no problem.

CATALYST event on Networked Social Responsibility this July in BXL

I got a general invitation from the Catalyst partners to join the international annual event on Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation - the EU funding stream behind Edgesense and Assembl tools we are testing, and the same that Edgeryders LbG was looking into with the fresh OpenCare proposal.

An idea: the Edgesense Early Users Group

In the wake of MoN3 we thought it would be a good idea to pull together a group of the 4-5 early users of Edgesense to become, effectively, co-designers of the tool. Edgesense is now more or less stable, but we still have some developer time and can now tweak it so as to make it more useful and pleasurable to use. To a first approximation, this group would include:

A/B testing on the impact of Assembl?

Good idea from Marc-Antoine of Imagination4People. Assembl is also being tested by the Loomio community (the subgroup on Loomio talking about Loomio). In that case, they do an A/B test: what is the impact of having seen the Assembl-generated summary on what people do (of course "what people do" must be precisely defined and measurable).

Edgesense testing - a working wiki

  • This wiki is a"work on progress" daily ( bi-daily) weekly documentation about testing edgesense.
  • The 1st set of questions are here.
  • as it is a work on progress, it wouldn't be well structured, include some thoughts, and will try not to add too much screenshots from edgesense to keep it easy to follow.

Questions regarding the Edgesense community testing

A list of preliminary questions to be answered through the Edgesense testing on Edgeryders, slightly focusing on building last year's event Lote4, timeline July - December 2014 (work on progress). Please add your questions and comments.

How subcommunities develop and grow in Edgeryders?

- who are the central non-moderator members? (potential moderator role in the community)
