Jones, S., Poulsen, A., Maiden, N. and Zachos, K. (2011). User roles in asynchronous distributed collaborative idea generation. Paper presented at the 8th ACM conference on Creativity and cognition, 3 - 6 Nov 2011, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Abstract

This paper presents the findings of an exploratory study within a real-life context that investigates participant behaviour and emergent user roles in asynchronous distributed collaborative idea generation by a defined community of users. In the study, a high-fidelity prototype of an online virtual ideas room was built and used by a Community of Interest consisting of representatives from 10 different voluntary organisations spread across Denmark. The study revealed five user roles, which the authors propose that future asynchronous distributed collaborative idea generation platforms should consider.
