Interactive Analysis
Abstract:Multiple Display Environments (MDEs) facilitate collaborative activities that involve the use of electronic task artifacts. Supporting interactions and infrastructures have matured in recent years, allowing researchers to now study how the use of MDEs impacts group work in controlled and authentic settings. This has created a need for tools to understand and make sense of the resulting interaction data. To address this need, we have designed and developed a new interactive analysis tool called VICPAM. Our tool consists of several components: (i) A spatial map view, which gives a 2D overview of all users’ activities; (ii) a time-aligned view, which shows users’ activities and the duration of each activity; (iii) the time slider, which can be used to adjust the period of time under study; and (iv) a video of the session synchronized with the timeline. The tool can reduce the effort necessary to analyze and make sense of users’ interaction data in MDEs.
