Abstract : The research in this report focuses on the viability of distributed, interacting, computer-supported team work and the factors that might impact the effective performance of such groups. Distributed refers to groups whose members are geographically separated; computer-supported refers to computer software that permits team members to 'screen share' as well as exchange files, and interacting refers to groups working synchronously on a task. This report examines the concept of a distributed group; including different configurations of distributed team work and the restrictions they impose on group process....
