Investigating the collaborative support in CollabRDL: An analysis based on the 3C model
We propose there are eight essential ingredients for collaboration, regardless of any underlying technology including face-to-face environments. These ingredients are: two or more people; shared space; time; a common objective; focus on the objective; common language; knowledge in the area of the objective; and interaction. These ingredients are useful for identifying aspects for improvement in both collaboration technology and human collaboration processes. Based on these essential ingredients glimpses offuture technology can be seen.
