The Purpose of Web Calendars
  • A web calendar is a marketing tool
  • Its main purpose is to publicize events, either
    within a community, or to the general public
  • Calendars should make it as easy as possible for
    users to find information on events of interest
    to them
  • On the Berkeley campus, it is very difficult for
    calendar users to find events
  • Visitors to the Berkeley campus
  • Students
  • Faculty
  • Staff
  • Users must go to many different calendars to find
    events of interest to them

3
The Problem
  • There are numerous calendars on the Berkeley
    campus
  • The Academic Calendar
  • Bancroft Library
  • Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive
  • Boalt Law School
  • Cal Performances
  • College of Engineering
  • College of Letters Science
  • Haas School of Business
  • Institute for East Asian Studies
  • Lawrence Hall of Science
  • Live.berkeley.edu
  • UC Berkeley gateway site (www.berkeley.edu)
  • …and more than 70 others

The Problem
  • It is difficult to get a comprehensive view of
    all campus events on a given day
  • Because the purpose of a calendar is to publicize
    events, many of these calendars would like to
    share their events with each other.
  • Currently there is no automated way to do this.
  • Often this is done by manually entering the event
    data into several different web forms
  • Or, even more inefficiently, by emailing the
    event data
  • Incompatible data models lack of technical
    resources prevent an automated exchange

7
Incompatible Data Models
  • U.C. Berkeley Gateway Site
  • Haas School of Business

8
The Solution
  • A standard data model of an Event
  • A centralized repository of Event information
  • A calendar management tool
  • Allows users to manage their events in the
    repository
  • Allows users to customize a visually compelling
    dynamic web-based calendar
  • A design for a system architecture allowing XML
    feeds to and from the repository for calendars
    who choose to maintain their own website
    repository

User-Centered Design Process
  • Interviews
  • ASUC
  • Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
  • Boalt Law School
  • Center for Latin American Studies
  • College of Letters Science
  • College of Natural Resources
  • Graduate Assembly
  • Haas School of Business
  • Information Systems and Technology
  • Institute of East Asian Studies
  • International House
  • Journalism
  • Public Health
  • Recreational Sports
  • School of Information Management Systems

11
User-Centered Design Process
  • Findings from Interviews
  • Very important to maintain Look and Feel of
    website
  • Ability to update information easily and quickly
  • Share events with other organizations on campus
  • 3 levels of users
  • Low level - No calendar
  • Medium level - Willing to try other calendar
    applications
  • Advanced level Do not want to replace current
    system but want to share events with UCB
    community

12
User-Centered Design Process
  • Competitive Analysis
  • Web Event
  • Cal Agenda
  • Calendars.net
  • Live.berkeley.edu
  • iCal
  • MS Outlook
  • Yahoo Calendar
  • Other User-Centered Design tools
  • Task Analysis
  • Personas
  • Scenarios

13
User-Centered Design Process
  • Iterative Design Process
  • Paper Prototype

User-Centered Design Process
  • Findings from Usability Testing
  • Application Layout
  • Terminology
  • Post vs. Publish
  • Public Event Contact
  • Features
  • Export

Calendar Transforms
  • Event Model Instance
  • Institute of East Asian Studies calendar
  • Original (http//ieas.berkeley.edu/events/)
  • Our transformation
  • Letters Science calendar
  • Original (http//ls.berkeley.edu/events/)
  • Our transformation

19
Future of the Project
  • Our project was developed in close communication
    with the e-Berkeley Program office of U.C.
    Berkeley
  • e-Berkeley plans to manage the development of a
    full functional and technical specification for
    this system this summer
  • If successful, our system will eventually be
    rolled out to the U.C. Berkeley campus community
  • Potential First Customers
  • UCB Gateway site (www.berkeley.edu)
  • Institute of East Asian Studies
  • SIMS
  • LS
  • Haas
