Single Display Groupware - Supporting Face-to-Face Collaboration

Authors: 

Keith Shu, Regan Mandryk

The dominant paradigm in computer interaction assumes that one computer is dedicated to one user at any one time. This ignores the fact that in many social environments, such as school or the workplace, people are often required to communicate and work collaboratively. The research area of Single Display Groupware (SDG) attempts to address this problem by finding effective ways to allow groups of two or more people to collaborate using a shared computer display.

Our research includes the following projects:

  • Foundational SDG Research
  • Multiple Input Devices
  • Shared Views
  • Public and Private Views
