How to Motivate Users of SOFISwiki

[zur Übersicht]
Felix Schwagereit

Motivating contributors is an important task for owners of online communities. Literature provides multiple suggestions to motivate users to increase content contribution. For the case of SOFISwiki we want to find out by means of a user experiment if some of these suggestions can be applied successfully in the domain of collaborative maintenance of project descriptions. The talk introduces the hypothesis and the test setting. Further comments and suggestions for this experiment are highly welcomed.
