Abstract

In this case study, we describe our use of ECT, a tool

intended to simplify the design and development of

network-spanning applications. We have used ECT

throughout the course of a two-year collaboration,

which has involved individuals with expertise in a

variety of fields, including interaction design and

computer systems engineering. We describe our

experiences with this tool, with a particular focus on its

emerging role in helping us to structure our

collaboration. We conclude by presenting lessons that

we have learned, and by suggesting future directions

for the development of tools to support the design of

network-spanning applications.
