Spatial and Social Connectedness in Web-based Work Collaboration
2016 (English)In: Proceedings of the 19th ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing Companion: Interactive Demo / [ed] Darren Gergle, Meredith, Ringel Morris, New Yor NY: ACM Digital Library, 2016, 45-48 p.Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
The work presented here seeks an integration of spatial and social features supporting shared activities, and engages users in multiple locations to manipulate realtime video-streams. Standard and easily available equipment is used together with the communication standard WebRTC. It adds a spatial quality of experience by representing the users anywhere on the screen, with easily changed diverse backdrops, inviting users to co-design a shared mediated space. User studies show that a seamless integration of space, social dynamics and shared activity benefits the experience of presence, naturalness, immersion/ engagement and social connectedness. The results inform a discussion about spatial and social connectedness, stressing the importance of design to integrate architectural/spatial features and support complex social dynamics in mediated interaction.
