Adding semantics ...
... to a wiki may allow to:
Find more easily resources in the wiki
Have more intuitive interface
Have an intelligent awareness
Link CoP content to external resources

What is SweetWiki?
An easy to usewiki ...
WYSIWYG editor
Support for external resources: video/office/...
Auto-completion
... with semantic webfacilities
Tagging
Folksonomy management
Semantic search

User can add tags to:
A page
An attached object
The interface allow to:
See the existing tags
The number of pages

What is SweetWiki?
Tag Navigation
Useful information for navigation extracted from meta-
data about:
the page (author, date, ...),
the tags (category, related, ...)
8

Dynamic content can be added to pages:
SPARQL queries
XSLT Library for presentation

Folksonomy edition
Users can manage the folksonomy
Hierarchisation, Enrichement, ...

Conclusion
Great experience
It is important to have users involved in the
development process
Usability studies provide valuable
information
Many bugs corrected
but
Time consuming

Further work
2 dimensions :
Studying CoPs:
Observation data can be made available to people
who want to study Palette CoPs
Providing them with a more usable tool:
Improve Taggingand Awareness
The gathered data can be used to provide some
future functionalities (eg. tags clustering)‏
