Slide 2

Overview Traditional CSCW Background, Influences, Technologies Case think about (Palen & Grudin) Calendar use in the work environment Non-conventional CSCW Beyond the working environment Case Studies MusicFX: A framework for Computer Supported Collaborative Work outs Proactive Displays Others…

Slide 3

What is CSCW? PC Supported Cooperative Work The field of CSCW concentrates on the utilization of innovation to intercede collaborations among individuals Use: Ethnography, plan, … Technology: Devices, foundations, … Interactions: Text, sound, video, … People: Teams, associations, groups, … Psychology, hierarchical conduct, human science, …

Slide 4

HCI versus CSCW HCI: human-PC association Individuals\' connections and associations with data innovation May include > 1 individual, however not really CSCW: human-PC human communication Individuals\' communications and connections through data innovation Always > 1 individual

Slide 5

Evolution of CSCW Computer Supported Cooperative Work is [typically] a social action including > 1 individual Technology can help and abet: Foreground: Communication, coordination, joint effort Background: Awareness Bridging time, space, authoritative limits, … Computer Supported Cooperative Whatever Beyond the work environment: progressively accessible in different settings … Home, auto, bistros, open spots, private spots, … and connected to non-work exercises Socializing, diversion, keeping in contact, …

Trends Convergence Computing, communication, communicate media Mobility (  Ubiquity) Devices: Laptops, PDAs, cell phones Infrastructure: WiFi, {2,2.5,3}G, EDGE Communities Professional (people group of practice) Others (Ebay.com, match.com, meetup.com) Goals Efficiency versus fun

Slide 7

CSCW has many impacts Computer Science Engineering Sociology: full scale and small scale Psychology Organizational Studies Management Studies Anthropology Communication Ethnography

Slide 8

CSCW investigate has numerous viewpoints Hard Determinism Behavior is unavoidably formed by innovation Soft Determinism Behavior has a tendency to be molded by innovation Co-Determinism Technology and our expectations control in show Non-Determinism We control the employments of innovation

Dimensions of Cooperation: Time and Space Place/Space F2F collaborations Post-its Telephony Email Newsgroups Text visit (IM, SMS) Calendar/planning Electronic whiteboards Audio/video conferencing App. /information sharing Group altering/comment GDSS Dataflow, work process Expertise area Recommendation Systems Awareness (media spaces) Time See Bannon and Schmidt, 1991: CSCW: Four Characters in Search of a Context. In Bowers, J. furthermore, Benford, S. (Eds) Studies in Computer Supported Cooperative Work – Theory, Practice and Design. North Holland.

Slide 10

Thinking of exercises from centered to fringe Awareness Shared experience Social exercises Informal cooperations Locating associates Reciprocity and symmetry are critical for collective errands Office sharing Meetings Focused work assignments See Harrison and Bly

Slide 11

CSCW concentrates on individuals working (connecting) with others Community; clients Organization Project/Teams Small Groups Individuals Networked PCs; PDAs, cellphones Workspaces; Media spaces; video conferencing GDSS; Workflow; Workspaces; Media spaces Intranets; archive vaults; aptitude area Internet; WWW HCI CSCW From Grudin, 1994

Slide 12

Team and Small Group Characteristics Members know each other Collaborate to accomplish a shared objective Highly engaged, intuitive Strong requirement for correspondence Examples Software advancement group, proposition composing, gathering program panels, little operational gatherings, for example, client bolster, inquire about venture groups Support advances include: Buddy records, texting, visit, Groove, Quickplace, BSCW, video conferencing, information conferencing See Grudin and Poltrock, Tutorial Collaboration Technology in Teams, Organizations, and Communities

Slide 13

Organization Characteristics Geographically circulated Hierarchical administration structure Strong requirement for coordination Examples Companies, governments or government offices, non-benefit associations Support advances include: Email, logbooks, work process, Lotus Notes, intranet applications and networks, report administration frameworks, communicate video

Slide 14

Community Characteristics Members don\'t [all] know each other Common interests or inclinations Loose structure & cooperations Examples Citizens of a city or neighborhood Newsgroups Virtual world nationals Auction members Support innovations include: sites, talk rooms, virtual universes Issues: notoriety, responsibility, obscurity Civic support regularly experiences uneven investment Lurkers "Disaster of the Commons"

Slide 15

Groupware versus Communityware Groupware Medium for reaching and associating with known colleagues keeping in mind the end goal to accomplish a common objective Email, Calendars, Chat, Whiteboards, Conferencing Communityware Medium for starting contact/exchanges with obscure teammates who have comparative interests and inclinations Newsgroups, Ebay, Amazon, Epinions, Meetup.com, Match.com

Slide 16

Case Study: Shared Calendars Adoption of Groupware Managerial Mandate (choose to utilize) Discretionary Choice (start to utilize) Effort/advantage tradeoff Benefit to administrators, administrators Effort required by "givers" Critical mass required [nearly] win or bust Discretionary Adoption of Group Support Software: Lessons from Calendar Applications. L. Palen and J. Grudin, 2002. In B.E. Munkvold (Ed.), Implementing coordinated effort innovations in associations, 159-180.

Slide 17

Studies of Calendar Use Initial meetings (Microsoft) 5 subjects; distinctive positions, divisions More meetings (Sun) 40 questions 12 subjects (clients, non-clients) Survey (both) 20 questions 3000 individuals (each site) Microsoft: 30% reaction rate Sun: half reaction rate

Slide 18

Similarities Widespread appropriation (75% of appts) Sun: 81% Microsoft: 75% "Unremarkable" innovation Part of ordinary work "Hard to envision existence without it"

Slide 19

Differences Sun CalendarManager Default (82%): open date-books User name + have PC name Company rolodex Scheduling, planning (derivations) Microsoft Schedule+ Default (81%): free/occupied (just) Scheduling just

Slide 20

Factors influencing selection Peer weight "across the board desire" "in addition to me", "peruse me" Exclusive advantages (conf. rooms) Integration (email "solicitations") Interface straightforwardness & effectiveness Technical support
