Group Performance in Computer-Mediated and Face-to-Face Communication Media.
Olaniran, Bolanle A.
Management Communication Quarterly, v7 n3 p256-81 Feb 1994
Explores the effects of computer-mediated communication (CMC) and face-to-face (FTF) media on group performance of college students. Finds that CMC groups generated a greater number of unique ideas than FTF groups but that CMC groups took longer to reach consensus than FTF groups. Discusses implications and recommendations for media combination choice. (RS)
