Implementing a Web Annotation System for Supporting Cooperative Works Using Tablet Devices
To support cooperative works by using tablet devices, a web annotation system and a smart sinage system are implemented in this work. We propose a web annotation system which adds the functionality of stickies to web pages, adds comments to web pages, and creates bidirectional links between the stickies. We also propose a smart sinage system for tablet devices to support collaborative works based on Web contents. The smart sinage system can synchronize displayed contents and annotation stickies on the system. In this paper, we describe the outline of these two systems and implementation of the systems. Two experiments were conducted to show that these proposed systems have potential in practical use.
