Online Teaching and Communication: Emotions in Computer Mediated Communication
Optional Fields
Computer mediated communication higher education education computing distance learning
The current education system and workplace emphasise teamwork, technology and globalization. These core concepts are central to Computer Science and the software development industry, where collaboration in virtual teams, across international boundaries, is commonplace. Computer mediated communication (CMC) facilitates emotions, but in a rather different dimension than face-to-face communication. To express emotions in CMC most common cues are Emoticons and Paralanguage. This paper will present results from a project wherein three international higher educational establishments collaborated on a computer mediated communication software engineering project. The paper will present the types of uses of emoticons and paralanguage cues used by students in their interactions. The work reveals the influence of emotion in the communication between students in a collaborative space.
