DGroups going mobile (85)

Post and Mindmap by Paolo Brunello

Are you one of the 125.000 Dgroup users? Dgroup is a platform similar to yahoogroups or googlegroups but it is not own by a private company, rather it is supported by a consortium of development organisations to allow for free and easy communication among groups of interests or communities of practices. It is 90% based on email listservs, although it has more advanced features like a file repository - the library.

The Dgroup users who participated in this session where asked by the Dgroups developer and interface designers to brainstorm about the possibilities that a mobile app could open up in terms of different users and uses of the platform. The discussion took place in 2 groups who then shared their insights and proposals (see picture).
