With the rise of the Internet, we now have a basic infrastructure, which makes participation easier for everyone and independent of space and time. Online participation offers many possibilities for users as well as operators, has an impact on political and administrative decisions and has the potential to strengthen the acceptance and the quality of them. We offer a novel approach for large-scale online-discussion. Feel free to try it out now!
We are aware of the fact, that D-BAS is not suitable for every online discussion, of course! But we give our best to deliver a software which can support rational online argumentations! You should give D-BAS a try if:
No complicated argumentation. Step-by-step dialogs.
Argument-maps are to messy. Let's use a modern chat-interface.
Give the power to the crowd. They know how to use it.
D-BAS was developed at the university in cooperation with cities.
Scientifically evaluated and tested by students and citizens.
Easy to deploy and maintain, because it is shipped with Docker.
We update dependencies to keep things fresh.
Developed by scientists in Düsseldorf.
This work is part of the graduate school on Online-Participation . It is funded by the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Research in North Rhine-Westphalia .
