Collaboration on annotation projects is in practice mostly done by people sharing the same room. However, several models for online cooperative annotation over the internet are possible. This paper explores and evaluates these, and reports on the use of peer-to-peer technology to extend a multimedia annotation tool (ELAN) with functions that support collaborative annotation.
