Abstract

In order to promote cooperation among students who work separately on their computers at home, the University of Essen has developed training courses with experienced tutors to teach students the required sensitivity and practical skills for tele-collaboration in small groups. A core problem in synchronous collaborative e-learning with speech exchange and application sharing is posed by the fact that acoustical signals in the boxes as well as visual content on the monitor of the remote site significantly differ in quality and timing from the ones on the sender’ s site. Moreover, users have little awareness of this fact. This chronic source of misunderstandings, inefficiency, and fatigue can be counteracted by a range of measures including features of the conferencing systems, add-on devices, simulations, and a training laboratory which allows syntopical monitoring of the two distant sites at once.
