Abstract

This paper describes two distinct research fields and identifies the similarities and differences between them. The first research field is collaboration engineering, which studies the design of recurring collaboration efforts without a facilitator. Working together in a group without a particular facilitation background can be difficult, and therefore standard facilitation techniques called thinkLets are used. The second research field is collaborative modelling, which looks into the creation of a model by a group of people. Comparing collaborative modelling with a gaming concept brings us to the area of Dialogue Games, which describes ways of how the conversation can be guided. Comparing thinkLets with Dialogue Games is the final section of this paper.
