TAPoR 2.0 is more than a place to find the classification of tools, it is a place to find and to used the tools themselves.
There are a few ways in which you can find tools. Looking for something specific? You can scroll through the pages, use the "search box" to search for tools you know, or by key words. You can sort for other like tools by sorting by attribute, or follow the leads of other users through the recommendation engine: see what "other people used."
In this version of TAPoR, you can become more engaged in the evaluation and promotion of the tools you use and love. At the bottom of each too page, you can read what other users have had to say about tool, and leave you own comments and reviews. You can add to the knowledge about and classification of tools by adding your own tags. You can also simply vote on a tool, giving it a positive or negative review by giving it a 'thumbs up' or a 'thumbs down.'
Have a tool you think is cool? TAPoR 2.0 provides a venue through which you can reach new audiences, hear their thoughts, and benefit from their reviews of your work. Please contact on of the project leads: Geoffrey Rockwell, University of Alberta, Stéfan Sinclair, McGill University, or Kirsten C. Uszkalo, University of Alberta, and we will be happy to bring your work into the conversation.
