D-Tools 2.0: Enabling efficient collaboration in digital design spaces across time and distance

PI: Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel


As the Design Thinking Method is becoming increasingly popular and widespread worldwide, Design Thinkers expand their collaborations across regions and continents and are thus geographically dispersed, even across time zones. The visual and haptic components of the work space are so far hard to share over distance and time. Moreover, written documentation and communication work tend to suppress creativity, curiosity, spontaneity, and team experience. D-Tools 2.0 aims at designing and implementing new IT-tools, which really support and optimize collaborative Design Thinking without hindering the team performance during the process.
