Group vs Individual: Impact of TOUCH and TILT Cross-Device Interactions on Mixed-Focus Collaboration


論文アブストラクト:Cross-device environments (XDEs) have been developed to support a multitude of collaborative activities. Yet, little is known about how different cross-device interaction techniques impact group collaboration, including how their impact on independent and joint work that often occurs during group work. In this work, we explore the impact of two XDE data browsing techniques: TOUCH and TILT. Through a mixed-methods study of a collaborative sensemaking task, we show that TOUCH and TILT have distinct impacts on how groups accomplish, and shift between, independent and joint work. Finally, we reflect on these findings and how they can more generally inform the design of XDEs.


クロスデバイス環境(XDE)における、TOUCHとTILTという2つの手法を用い、個人とグループの、コラボレーション行動に及ぼす影響を調べた研究。 TILTは特に個々の作業中に、TOUCHは特に共同作業中に適していた。
