Improving usefulness and ease of use for a prototype tool for journalists
MetadataVis full innførsel
This thesis presents the work done on making a prototype tool for journalists more useful and easier to use through continuous improvements and evaluations. The work builds on the thesis News Hunter: a semantic news aggregator written by Ole Andreas Christensen and Kjetil Jacobsen Villanger (2017). This thesis focuses on the further development and addition of new functionality through iterative processes during development. As well as new functionality, the thesis focuses on making the project more sustainable for future use, with better documentation and refactoring of code. News Hunter is a collaborative project between the University of Bergen and Wolftech Broadcast Solutions. The goal of this thesis is to add new functionality to News Hunter and better document the project. This has been achieved by continuing working on Christensens and Villangers source code, and by adding new functionality in iterative agile steps throughout the develop- ment. The new functionality has then been evaluated by journalists and graphic reporters from TV 2 Norway, as well as journalism students from the University of Bergen.
