What evaluation criteria should be included that are specific to online mini-publics?

Real-Life Cases 

Supportiveness. The platform should support the group overall, so that there is either an improvement or no decline in the ability of the group to meet the needs of its members or stakeholders. 

Comprehensiveness. The platform should allow the group to accomplish, in an online environment, all of the usual deliberative tasks associated with face-to-face meetings.

Participation. The platform should maximize the number of desired participants in the group’s deliberations, and minimize barriers to their participation. Finally, the fourth criterion (quality) was aimed at the group’s satisfaction with the process and substance of its decisions.

Quality. The platform should facilitate a subjective quality of interaction and decision making that meets or exceeds what the group achieves in face-to-face meetings.”
