WikiAnalytics Workshop

Posted: March 26, 2010 at 10:23 am  |  By: Johanna Niesyto  |  Tags: , ,

Yesterday we gathered at the UvA at the Digital Methods Institute (DMI) for an informal workshop in order to exchange methodological approaches and to discuss tools to allow analyzing Wikipedia. Mainly two approaches have been identified that don't necessarily stand in contrast to each other:
  • Follow the users and providers: Researchers following this approach mainly work with ethnographic approaches using interviews, participative observation etc.
  • Follow the medium: Researches following this approach start by analysing digitial phenomena and focus on digital artifacts, their structures and dynamics.
Synopses of the research designs and references to tools you find on the DMI website.
