Implications of We-Awareness to the Design of Distributed Groupware Tools

Saul Greenberg, Carl Gutwin
2016 Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)  
While we-awareness is easy afforded in face to face collocated collaboration, it is much more difficult to design distributed groupware tools to provide equivalent capabilities: there can be no awareness  ...  We illustrate the nuances of these questions why they are difficult to answer by revisiting several prior technical solutions to we-awareness.  ...  Acknowledgements This research was supported in part by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Implications of We-Awareness  ...

Toolkits and interface creativity

Saul Greenberg
2006 Multimedia tools and applications  
To illustrate this important link between toolkits and creativity, I describe example groupware toolkits we have built and how people have leveraged them to create innovative interfaces.  ...  In contrast, toolkits for novel and perhaps unfamiliar application areas enhance the creativity of these programmers.  ...  Acknowledgements I am thankful for the many wonderfully talented students who produced the many interface ideas illustrated in this paper, as well as the many other ideas that I had to leave out due to  ...

Four principles of groupware design

Andy Cockburn, Steve Jones
1995 Interacting with computers  
This paper examines and records the major causes of groupware failure, and provides four groupware design principles that encapsulate the problems and guide design teams around them.  ...  Groupware design is at a stage where identification, clarification and validation of best practice is critical if its potential is to be realised.  ...  Groupware designers, and all those involved in system development, must be aware of the social implications inherent in group work support.  ...

A Conceptual Framework for Analyzing the Use of Context in Groupware [chapter]

Márcio G. P. Rosa, Marcos R. S. Borges, Flavia M. Santoro
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We illustrate the use of the framework in the analysis of three groupware tools.  ...  The conceptual framework can be used not only to guide the development of new groupware applications but also to analyze existing groupware.  ...  The framework is considered as the first step towards offering assistance to groupware designers wanting to include contextual elements in their tools.  ...

Gathering big data for teamwork evaluation with microworlds

Claudio Miguel Sapateiro, Pedro Antunes, David Johnstone, José A. Pino
2016 Cluster Computing  
Then, we discuss a study that used the developed microworld to evaluate a groupware tool, which was designed to support team activities related to infrastructure maintenance.  ...  The paper emphasises the range of data gathered with the microworld, and how it contributed to simultaneously evaluate team behaviour and tool design.  ...  Consequently, we decided to design and develop a mobile tool supporting situation awareness [104] . The critical challenge though was evaluating the tool.  ...

Internet-based groupware for user participation in product development

Monica Divitini, Babak A. Farshchian, Tuomo Tuikka
1999 ACM SIGGROUP Bulletin  
The topic discussed was how we can use groupware technology to involve end-users in the development of software and non-software products.  ...  In this workshop, we took a look at how groupware is or could be used to facilitate collaboration between users and developers in order to increase the quality of the product.  ...

The support of mobile-awareness in collaborative groupware

Keith Cheverst, Gordon Blair, Nigel Davies, Adrian Friday
1999 Personal Technologies  
To support the development of mobile-aware groupware we have built a flexible Quality of Service (QoS)-based group service capable of providing group-oriented feedback to application level services.  ...  Abstract= This paper explores the need for mobile-awareness in groupware designed for use in a mobile environment.  ...  Mobile-Aware Distributed Groupware The key to creating some form of compatibility between distributed groupware and mobile communications is mobile-aware groupware.  ...

Towards Computation over Communities [chapter]

Toru Ishida
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Understanding that the team metaphor has created various research fields including groupware and distributed artificial intelligence, it seems that the community metaphor has the potential to generate  ...  With the advance of global computer networks, a dramatic shift in computing metaphors has begun: from team to community.  ...  They draw some design implications from this observation: notably arguing for sensitivity to the nature of the work of representing a community to itself.  ...

Based on this model, we compare the design of the three tools and present general guidelines for the implementation of exploration environments.  ...  To generalize our findings, we develop a model which describes the user interface of tailorable groupware.  ...  To describe the users' problems and to generalize the design-related finding, we have developed a model of the user interface of tailorable groupware.  ...

Beyond the lan

Jeff Dyck, Carl Gutwin, T. C. Nicholas Graham, David Pinelle
2007 Proceedings of the 2007 international ACM conference on Conference on supporting group work - GROUP '07  
We examined five game libraries to find networking techniques that could benefit groupware; this paper presents the concepts most valuable to groupware developers, including techniques to deal with limited  ...  Some of the techniques have been previously reported in the networking literature; therefore, the contribution of this paper is to survey which techniques have been shown to work, over several years, and  ...  Most networking algorithms have not been designed with the needs of groupware in mind, and are not necessarily applicable to this kind of distributed system.  ...
