Abstract

We present CoPe_it!, an innovative web-based tool that complies with collaborative practices to provide members of diverse communities with the appropriate means to manage individual and collective knowledge during a complex sense-making and/or decision-making session. We discuss the rationale behind the tool’s development and present its features and functionalities that aim to efficiently deal with cognitive overload issues.
