The effects of time on computer-mediated communication group meetings: an exploratory study using an evaluation task


  • Zachary Wong

Group discussion and decision-making under time constraints is part of many people's lives and much remains unknown about this behaviour. In our study on the effects of time limits placed on computer-mediated group meetings, subjects participated in time-deprived, time-optimal and time-abundant conditions, respectively. This study indicated that in groups with different time conditions overall results varied in their perceptions on several areas of the meeting processes and, we found that the relationships between time and groups' perceptions of meeting processes and outcomes were not linear.
