Abstract

This poster describes an experiment which is being carried out to investigate the effects of integrating a social tagging model into an existing workrelated/task-oriented application; a Web 2.0 case study repository and cross-case analysis application. In this study, we will focus on investigating the utility of the application as well as the users' behavioral patterns in an attempt to gain a better understanding of (1) how users utilize a tagging model to manage their personal and social information space, (2) the users' behavioral patterns as they classify, explore, retrieve, and share the information utilizing tagging models and how this differs from a non-social tagging model, (3) the impact of a social tagging model in the quality of the work produced.
