This paper describes a study on an innovative system designed to support remote collaborative. This system is a game running on tabletops with tangible interaction. Twelve test groups, each composed of three participants, tested a distributed application for learning and recognition of colors. We propose a set of generic tangible objects. They model a set of collaborative styles which are possible between users. Our goal is to obtain objects that provide remote collaboration among users of such interactive tabletops. This study is supported by observations, trace analysis and questionnaires. In this study, we analyze if the use of generic objects is easy and understandable by users in case of remote collaboration. The user satisfaction when using the distributed tangible tabletops is also studied.
