Current technological solutions that enable content creation and sharing during group discussion meetings are often cumbersome to use, and are commonly abandoned for traditional, manual tools such as flip-charts or white-boards. Those tools provide much flexibility in supporting a wide range of working styles and task activities that may occur in a given meeting. However, they have their own drawbacks; content that is generated in an analog way is difficult to modify or replicate. In the NiCE Discussion Room we introduce a novel digital meeting room design, which integrates digital and analog, paper tools into a cohesive system with an intuitive pen-based interface. The combination of digital and paper media provides groups with a flexible design solution that enables them to create, access, and share information and media from a variety of sources to facilitate group discussions.
