synchronously online on Mondays, 5-6pm
You mentioned in your email that these meetings could be recorded as needed. Could you elaborate on that?
Many tasks worth completing require cooperation –yet crowdsourcing has largely focused on independent work. Distributed teams have always facedchallenges in cultural differences and coordination, but crowd collaboration now must createrapport over much shorter timescales(e.g., one hour) and possibly wider culturalor socioeconomic gaps
In Kittur's example, synchronous collaboration describes a temporal aspect (timescale and tempo of the work) related to how the collaboration is structured or not.
"Short periods of intense crowd collaboration call for fast teambuilding and may require the automatic assignment of group members to maximize collective intelligence."
Finally, it will be amajor research undertaking to invent and describe the tasks and techniques that succeed with synchronous collaboration
Could this be a theme of the SBTF time study?
