Abstract
"UseWorld.Net" is a web-based portal for the community of man-machine-interfaces. To support the cooperative tasks of the members, a shared workspace was included. This shared workspace was based on an open framework, called "SWOF" that provides the basic features and can be customized to a different cooperation case. High usability is an important aspect of the implementation. To achieve these aims SWOF focuses on an information space with more task-suited item-types that can help to restructure the information. So the system help the users to keep information in a consistent way and reduce the number of necessary agreements between the group members. In this article the concept is described and the results of a first evaluation are presented.
