Abstract

Awareness is the knowledge about present and past group’s activities and it is a relevant issue for cooperative work. There are many devices that supply awareness information in synchronous collaborative editing systems. However, the current awareness devices have restrictions to both accomplish effective awareness and show the focus of attention identifying the exact place of the participants’ attention. This paper presents an awareness widget for synchronous collaborative editing systems called TeleEye that provides information about the localization of the participants’ attention during a collaborative session by means of eye tracking.
