Abstract

Online group work is an increasingly central component of modern higher education and enterprise. Regardless of the mode of study, many learners will make use of a groupware application to support them in the completion of group work. In order to facilitate effective online collaboration, awareness mechanisms have been developed; groupware features aiming to replace some of the understanding of group member activity inherent in face-to-face collaboration. Ongoing research by the author explores “participation awareness”, a mechanism which autonomously collates and processes all activity within a groupware environment in order to produce an at-a-glance display of participation. This paper presents a preliminary analysis of data pertaining to how this awareness information is best displayed.
