Improving Collaboration and Shared Experiences in Out-and-About Mobile Video Conferencing
Brennan Jones and Anthony Tang. (2015). Improving Collaboration and Shared Experiences in Out-and-About Mobile Video Conferencing. In Everyday Telepresence: Emerging Practices and Future Research Directions - Workshop at CHI 2015.
Video conferencing allows people to collaborate and share experiences across a variety of work and play- related scenarios. Mobile video conferencing enables entirely new usage scenarios where one or more parties are physically moving around in a large activity environment. One major benefit of mobile devices is that they can potentially support activities that focus on large environments—activities such as searching, navigating, and touring. However, today’s mobile video conferencing tools are not designed to support such activities. We discuss potential design ideas for mobile video conferencing tools that could better support these kinds of activities.
