We will conduct an usability test involving Creole.

The plan is as follows:

  • There will be two groups of students, 26 persons each. Those are 1st year math students, will basic computer skills (they can use e-mail).
  • Each group will use a separate wiki site both for getting their course materials and for doing their homework.
  • The wiki sites will be identical, except they will use different parsers -- supporting two different versions of modified Creole.
  • The students will not be able to see any pages created by other students (at least not without the other student's action).
  • The preview button has been disabled, as to record as much material as possible.
  • The students will only receive very brief introduction. The rest of the information is to be found on the wiki.
  • The teacher will demand that the pages are well-formatted.

The differences between the two versions:

Group 1 Group 2
wiki-like line breaks blog-like line breaks
a space required after the bullets no space required after the bullets
[[link|description]] [[description->link]]

The wiki engine is being prepared at http://helios.wmid.amu.edu.pl/~sheep/cgi-bin/ppr.cgi It has only the basic wiki functionality, as to avoid distraction and intimidation.

The engine is ready. The classes start 19th of February 2007.
