The Parting of the Ways: Divergence, Data Management and Collaborative Work [chapter]

Paul Dourish
1995 Proceedings of the Fourth European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work ECSCW '95  
Second, it supports "multi-synchronous" work, in which parties work independently in parallel. Third, it directly supports observed patterns of opportunistic activities in collaborative working.  ...  Systems coordinating distributed collaborative work must manage user data distributed over a network.  ...  In particular, they pointed to the ways in which opportunistic action on the parts of individual collaborators often went against pre-defined roles, responsibilities or plans.  ...

The Network Discussion Supporting System Embedded Computer Coordinator at the Distributed Places

1995 Educational technology research  
In the case of collaborative learning, it is neces- sarv to communicate with others, Thus, it seems how to support the discussion is one of the most important issues in the researches  ...  We ernbed the expert system which plays the role of a coordinator in order to support their discussion adaptively in iDCLE.  ...  discussion is divergent" and "do focus on one issue'' to the student who plays the role of a group leader. The group leader is defined by referring rule set-C as follows.  ...

Knowledge Convergence in Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning: The Role of External Representation Tools

Frank Fischer, Heinz Mandl
2005 The Journal of the Learning Sciences  
Learners in the computer-mediated collaboration used a wider range of resources.  ...  Sixty-four (64) university students participated in the study. Results showed that learning partners converged strongly with respect to their use of resources during the collaboration process.  ...  In 59 of the 64 cases the divergence in resource use was smaller for the real dyads than for their nominal controls.  ...

Knowledge convergence in collaborative learning: Concepts and assessment

Armin Weinberger, Karsten Stegmann, Frank Fischer
2007 Learning and Instruction  
This study further demonstrated that prior knowledge convergence may interact with specific instructional support methods, in this case computer-supported collaboration scripts.  ...  Learners in knowledge convergent dyads were substantially supported in their knowledge acquisition by a collaboration script structuring learner interaction by assigning the roles of explainer and listener  ...  The learners' task was to build concept-case relations, i.e. apply concepts of attribution theory by Weiner (1985) to information of the problem case.  ...

Putting the Global in Global Work: An Intercultural Lens on the Practice of Cross-National Collaboration

Pamela Hinds, Lei Liu, Joachim Lyon
2011 The Academy of Management Annals  
Acknowledgments Our work was made possible through a grant from the Hasso Plattner Design Thinking Research Program to the first author and a scholarship from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation to the third  ...  In all cases, however, global work refers to collaborations in which workers are geographically distributed across national boundaries.  ...  Adaptation can lead to convergence or divergence or, in rare cases, neither. Convergence versus divergence.  ...

IT Support for Business Process Innovation -- Architectural Choices and Design Challenges

Matthias Voigt, Kevin Ortbach, Ralf Plattfaut, Bjorn Niehaves
2013 2013 46th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
In this context, choosing and implementing IT tools that are supportive to these two specifics of process innovation can be considered a key success factor for organizations.  ...  Companies have to be aware of those challenges in order to make an informed decision on system design. In this paper, we derive and consolidate characteristics of the innovation process.  ...  In addition, every application used in the innovation process will use diverse roles for managing access.  ...

Building a Facilitated Design Collaboration Environment

Haiyan Fan, Sanjay Notakar, Marshall Scott Poole
2005 Americas Conference on Information Systems  
In this paper we propose a collaborative environment for GUI design and evaluation, at the core of which is a process-based Agent Facilitator (AF).  ...  Complex design problems require members of project teams go beyond individualistic work to engage in joint activity of generating new insights, new ideas, and new artifacts.  ...  GSS tools such as brainstorming, brainwriting, and shared whiteboards can be used to support divergent thinking. Conferencing, chat, and commenting tools support discussion.  ...
