Abstract

This paper presents an approach combining concepts of virtual storytelling with cooperative processes. We describe why storytelling is relevant in cooperation support applications, and outline how storytelling concepts provide a new quality for groupware applications. Different prototypes illustrate a combination of a groupware application with various storytelling components in a Theatre of Work.
