Following the JISC sandpit on the 13th and 14th of July, Artivity is now funded for another 4 months by JISC. This is great news for the project as it will give us the opportunity to develop a new plugin for Krita which is a raster image editing package. You can see the full sandpit presentation on slide share, including the deliverables for phase two. You can read Daniela Duca's announcement here and a nice DCC blogpost by Angus White.
The challenges for the new phase are:
- Come up with a robust plan of how to scale-up Artivity from a small proof of concept project to a wider user-base deployment.
- Capture a few extended examples to showcase the value of Artivity data.
