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.
