from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Collaboration refers abstractly to all processes wherein people work together, applying both to the work of individuals as well as larger collectives and societies.

As an intrinsic aspect of human society, the term is used in many varying contexts such as science, art, education, and business.

Research into the properties of and process of collaboration has intensified with the advent of the Internet, collaborative editing, and computer mediated communication (CMC).

As software designers, facilitators and theorists from diverse fields of study strive to create more useful and effective collaborative environments and methods, more light is shone on this ubiquitous and taken for granted practice, and the nature of collaboration is coming under more intensive study.
