On the Adoption of Groupware for Large Displays: Factors for Design and Deployment

Groupware systems on large displays are becoming increasingly ubiquitous in the workplace. While these applications face many of the same challenges to adoption as conventional desktop-based groupware, the public and shared nature of these systems heighten these challenges as well as present additional difficulties that can affect adoption and success. Our field study of seven large display groupware applications (LDGAs) uncovered several factors of their design and deployment that influenced their adoption and usage within the workplace.
