Collaboration Engineering with ThinkLets to Pursue Sustained Success with Group Support Systems
The thinkLet concept is proposed, a codified packet of facilitation skill that can be applied by practitioners to achieve predictable, repeatable patterns of collaboration, such as divergence or convergence, which may become a sine qua non for organizations to effectively support virtual work teams.

Instructional video in e-learning: Assessing the impact of interactive video on learning effectiveness
Students in the e-learning environment that provided interactive video achieved significantly better learning performance and a higher level of learner satisfaction than those in other settings, and the findings suggest that it may be important to integrate interactive instructional video into e- learning systems.

Lessons from a Dozen Years of Group Support Systems Research: A Discussion of Lab and Field Findings
During the past dozen years, researchers at the University of Arizona have built six generations of group support systems software, conducted over 150 research studies, and facilitated over 4,000Expand
Collaboration Engineering: Designing Repeatable Processes for High-Value Collaborative Tasks
Through a number of action research studies with a host of organizations, a Collaboration Engineering design approach was developed and illustrated in terms of its way of thinking, working, modeling and controlling. Expand
Association for Information Systems
Based on the analysis of representative evaluation methods, through certain financial indicators, using the financial data of listed companies of China, we use the Logistic regression method to buildExpand
Causal Relationships in Creative Problem Solving: Comparing Facilitation Interventions for Ideation
The cognitive network model (CNM) is presented as a causal model of the cognitive mechanisms that give rise to creative solutions in the human mind to explain why creativity prescriptions work as they do and provide a basis for deriving new techniques to further enhance creativity. Expand
A conceptual foundation of the thinkLet concept for Collaboration Engineering
An analysis of the thinkLet concept is presented and a conceptual object model of a thinkLet that may inform further developments in Collaboration Engineering is proposed. Expand
The Yield Shift Theory of Satisfaction and Its Application to the IS/IT Domain
This paper presents a meta-modelling system that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and therefore expensive and expensive process of manually cataloging and cataloging individual acres of land for use in rural areas. Expand
Meeting Satisfaction for Technology-Supported Groups
Research shows that people who feel dissatisfied with a technology-supported meeting may discontinue use of such technology, even if it provides demonstrable benefits. It is therefore important toExpand
ThinkLets: achieving predictable, repeatable patterns of group interaction with group support systems (GSS)
This paper argues that in GSS research, the thinkLet may be a more useful unit of comparison than the GSS, and field and laboratory research may be more controllable, more replicable, and better able to inform GSS development and use. Expand
