Computer-supported work in partially distributed and co-located teams: the influence of mood feedback

Sonderegger, Andreas ; Lalanne, Denis ; Bergholz, Luisa ; Ringeval, Fabien ; Sauer, Juergen

This article examines the influence of mood feedback on different outcomes of teamwork in two different collaborative work environments. Employing a 2 x 2 between-subjects design, mood feedback (present vs. not present) and communication mode (face-to-face vs. video conferencing) were manipulated experimentally. We used a newly developed collaborative communication environment, called EmotiBoard,...
