Abstract

With the growing possibilities for ICT to support knowledge-emergent activities, this study introduces a multi-display discussion software "Borderless Canvas," which facilitate the development of knowledge-emergent capabilities through these activities. Utilizing ZUI (Zooming User Interface), this software allows all the discussion participants to share a "zoomable canvas," which displays presentation slides created by Microsoft PowerPoint, and to freely view the slides and write comments on the "canvas" with an electronic pen, unimpeded by the usual hierarchal barrier between the presenter and the audience, thus deepening the discussion between them. By preparing additional public display screens in the room, the presenter can also display slides coming before or after the main slide being shown, making the display of slides on-site more dynamic. This paper describes the contributors' motivation and rationale for this project and provides details on the subject software.
