Abstract

An experimental evaluation of video support for shared work-space software is described. Groups of two users worked simultaneously and cooperatively on a problem using Aspects on Macintosh computers in one of four scenarios. Each of these scenarios provided a different form of supplementary communication: audio only, reduced frame-rate video, standard video, and full face-to-face communication. Although the audio link had been found to be essential in an earlier pilot study, in this experiment there was no discernible difference in performance between any of the four scenarios. Nevertheless, users indicated that they were more comfortable with the face-to-face situation.
