- Conference PaperThe Novelty Effect in Large Display Deployments – Experiences and Lessons-Learned for Evaluating Prototypes(Proceedings of 16th European Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work - Exploratory Papers, 2018) Koch, Michael; von Luck, Kai; Schwarzer, Jan; Draheim, SusanneThis exploratory paper addresses the novelty effect in large display field deployments by combining findings from both the existing body of knowledge and our own research. We found that the novelty effect is prevalently present on two occasions: (a) immediately after a new system is deployed in a new environment, and (b) in reoccurring situations, when changes are made to an existing system. Both instances share similarities such as a system’s higher usage during a particular time frame. However, we also observed that their individual reasons to occur are multifaceted. The present work’s main contribution is twofold. Firstly, the paper outlines related literature regarding the novelty effect, particularly in CSCW and HCI. Secondly, the paper illustrates the effect’s complex nature and suggests explicit means that should be considered in related research endeavors.
- Text DocumentPresence & Placement: Exploring the Benefits of Multiple Shared Displays on an Intellective Sensemaking Task(Proceedings of the 2009 ACM International Conference on Supporting Group Work, 2009) Plaue, Christopher; Stasko, JohnRelatively little is known about how the presence and location of multiple shared displays changes the performance and dynamics of teams collaborating. We conducted a case study evaluating several shared display configurations with groups collaborating on a data-intensive, sense-making task. Teams completed the same task using either a single display, side-by-side dual, or opposing dual shared displays. The location of the second shared display significantly impacted the ability for teams to make logical connections amongst the data. Users were also significantly more satisfied with the collaboration process using the side-by-side dual display condition than those using a single display.
- Text DocumentThe Proximity Factor: Impact of Distance on Co-Located Collaboration(Proceedings of the 2005 ACM International Conference on Supporting Group Work, 2005) Hawkey, Kirstie; Kellar, Melanie; Reilly, Derek; Whalen, Tara; Inkpen, Kori M.Groups collaborating around a large wall display can do so in a variety of arrangements, positioning themselves at different distances from the display and from each other. We examined the impact of proximity on the effectiveness and enjoyment of co-located collaboration. Our results revealed collaborative benefits when participants were positioned close together, and interaction with the display was felt to be more effective when participants were close to the display. However, clear tradeoffs were evident for these configurations. When at a distance to the display, the choice of direct versus indirect interaction revealed that interactions were easier when using direct input but the effectiveness of the collaboration was compromised.
