Product Framework for the Observatory
Title Framework for the Observatory
Product Type others
Marketing Text The framework for the Observatory is the starting point for the tangible creation of an online interactive platform for the sector.
Therefore its remit is to methodically detail all that will be involved in doing this on strategic, practical and implementational levels. The Framework will act as a guide (‘how to’) including summarising the tasks and stages involved in the Observatory development. It will also describe how content will be managed, mediated, and quality assured. The Framework will catalogue the types of information to be included as well as key sources of information. The Observatory will be launched in two stages and therefore the Framework will need to include a mechanism for reviewing the design, quality, user friendliness and content of the first stage of the website, thereby informing the development of the 2nd stage.
The lead partner for the Dissemination WP package has recommended that the work group utilise technical expertise in order to ensure that the technology in the Observatory is ‘future proofed’. Part of the remit will be to look at the best ways in which to ensure that a dynamic (rather than static) environment is developed, that is low-cost and can therefore be sustained post funding.
Area of application The multimedia web platform, will have mediated content and exchange, and will have a portal utilising professional / social networking sites such as ‘Linked In’ (http://www.linkedin.com/static?key=what_is_linkedin) in order to create low/no cost discussion group/s. This will be unmediated and while it will be motivated by partners in the early stages, will develop its own impetus virally thereby requiring minimal maintenance.
