CSCW

(Computer Supported Cooperative Work) The ways technology helps people work together on projects. CSCW covers collaboration in the same venue (see roomware) as well as across distances. Real-time collaboration such as videoconferencing and document editng is "synchronous," while email, calendars and blogs fall into "asynchronous" collaboration. CSCW conferences are sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). For more information, visit www.cscw2010.org. See collaborative software and groupware.

It must be noted that these are different to the interface patterns developed in HCI (Schummer, 2002) as this article looks at the HCH interactions, and are different from the interaction pattern studies in other CSCW systems (McManus & Aiken, 1999), in that the next step of feedback implementation is included in the pattern structure.
