Co-authoring Proto-patterns to Support on Designing Systems to Be Adequate for Users´ Diversity

Junia Coutinho Anacleto, Marcos Alexandre Rose Silva, Elis Cristina Montoro Hernandes


This paper describes about co-authoring proto-patterns, i.e., patterns candidate, with successful solutions for recurrent problems on generating adequate system that allows users, as co-authors, create, format and make available the content of system according to users´ profile, language, needs, etc. A case study, considering educational environment, was done in order to collect evidences about the use of these proto-patterns and, it was observed that these proto-patterns express the essence of solutions to support on designing systems to allow co-authoring.
