Issues of Collaboration in a Virtual Environment
Faculty of Information Studies in Novo mesto, Slovenia
With the globalization of the economy, more and more employees are working with team members half way around the world. This paper examines the benefits and issues in using information technologies, including Web 2.0, to support collaboration of teams in a virtual environment, the emerging methods and technologies and socio-technical issues associated with collaboration and teams in virtual environments, and proposes a new categorization of e-collaboration tools, which supplements the older classifications. In order to reduce the negative effects, developers and users of e-collaboration tools for virtual environments should address human interaction issues as well as social issues and organizational issues.
