About this book

Introduction

Marc Marheineke explores the phenomenon of boundary objects in the process of virtual collaboration. Virtual collaboration is an interactive act that connects jointly and voluntarily collaborating individuals that are electronically linked and he examines these communities from different perspectives. All communities are characterized by their aim to conduce to shared understanding through a purposeful use of boundary objects. These objects are artefacts that serve two or more community members to establish collaboration. This book shows in a design-oriented process how and when to use these boundary objects for virtual collaboration.
