ABSTRACT: We are increasingly using digital technology to communicate and collaborate with others in a variety of contexts. Yet, how do we design effective tools for discussion, analysis and decision-making about information with collocated and distributed team members? In this talk, I will outline my group’s approach to this challenge, where we consider specific domains, taking a design thinking approach in designing and evaluating prototype solutions. I will show how we apply this approach to remote assistance, where remote collaborators offer help to one another in solving physical task. As collaboration moves beyond the desktop, we need to understand how to design and build effective tools for group activity. These cannot be designed as thought experiments — instead, building them is an important first step to evaluating them effectively.
