Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Online commenting systems have changed the boundaries of traditional discourse, allowing more people than ever to engage in public discussions. However, these platforms are subject to design and social behaviour issues that undermine their potential. This doctoral work aims to provide pluralistic online communities with an improved online commenting tool to better structure and facilitate discussions. To date, a novel commenting system has been built and evaluated in preliminary studies.
