Groupspace: A 3D Workspace Supporting User Awareness

Video presentation from the 2002 CHI conference. Real-time distributed groupware must support awareness of other users if collaborators are to work together effectively. Several techniques have been developed for enhancing awareness in two-dimensional shared workspaces, but less is known about how to support awareness in 3D workspaces. The Groupspace system incorporates several types of awareness techniques (embodiment enhancements, participant list enhancements, and the Grand Tour) to help users maintain awareness of othersÕ locations and perspectives, even when they are distant or out of view.
