Using Two Different Electronic Meeting System Tools for the Same Task: An Experimental Comparison
TLDR
This study compares two different ems software tools in a controlled experiment and found that one software tool produced better quality solutions to a combination creativity and intellective task, but the other helped generate more unique alternatives.
Implementing Gesturing with Cursors in Group Support Systems
TLDR
The results show that while full motion computer gesturing can be supported on PC-LAN systems for small groups, gesturing for medium and large groups requires the use of special techniques such as regulating transmission rates, motion smoothing, and point and quiver cursors.
An analysis tool for the assessment of student participation and implementation dynamics in online discussion forums
In order to conduct a successful online forum it is necessary to have a collection of proven provocative discussion topics, a sound technique to implement them, and a consistent way to assess student
Enabling the Effective Involvement of Multiple Users: Methods and Tools for Collaborative Software Engineering
TLDR
The paper introduces electronic meeting systems modeling tools designed to allow users to work in parallel to contribute directly during meetings to help organizations respond to today's rapidly changing information processing needs.
Alleviating convergence problems in Group Support Systems
TLDR
The Shared Context Model (SCM) of cooperative work is adopted and it is shown that it supports existing processes and others and expected that groups will find merging their work easier with the SCM.

TLDR
The impact the use of the Java programming language has had on the way students learn to program and the success they achieve is examined.
Gesturing through cursors: implementing multiple pointers in group support systems
TLDR
The author's results show that full motion computer gesturing can be supported on PC-LAN (local area network) systems for small groups and requires the use of special techniques such as regulating transmission rates, motion smoothing, and point and quiver cursors.
