Abstract:
In this paper, we present a new application framework aimed to support distributed synchronous collaboration using multi-touch interaction. The framework supports 2D and 3D virtual workspaces that enable two or more users to collaboratively or cooperatively manipulate shared objects with multi-touch interfaces. We present two applications developed with the aim to explore 2d/3d immersive collaborative environments with multi-touch interaction. We also present our experience and preliminary results in designing, developing and integrating these applications on educational settings.
