Supporting Design Studio Learning: An investigation into design communication in computer-supported collaboration
CSCL’99, Stanford, December 1999, pp. 328-332
Earlier studies suggest that benefits may be found in chat line communication rather than high bandwidth video-conferencing conditions when considering collaborative design learning. This paper draws together studies that look at this conjecture and concludes that chat line collaboration reduces fixation in problem space exploration. This encourages the participants to explore design opportunities in a different way than graphical or video based communication.
