Are two heads better than one?: object-focused work in physical and in virtual environments

  title={Are two heads better than one?: object-focused work in physical and in virtual environments},
  author={Ilona Heldal and Maria Spante and Mike Connell},
Under which conditions has collaboration added value over individual work? How does performance change when using different technologies? These are important questions for industry and for research. This paper addresses them for pairs versus individuals using physical objects and virtual representations for object-focused task-solving. Based upon previous research on pair's performance and experiences for collaboration in a real setting and four different distributed virtual environments (VEs… CONTINUE READING
