Henriksson, Aron. Neculau, Andrei. 2008. Towards Enhanced E-collaboration in Academia. A Holistic Model for Development E-collaboration Software. The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. Information and Communication Technology.E-collaboration is an inherently complex activity that encompasses many factors that supplement the pivotal technical elements. This paper investigates the various aspects of e-collaboration from an academic viewpoint, and reiterates the call for a holistic approach towards e-collaboration research and development. Moreover, the use of collaboration tools by IT students is surveyed, which substantiates the belief that e-collaboration needs to be further promoted in academia. We present a conceptual model that hopefully can provide some guidance for further research on e-collaboration and development of e-collaboration suites.
