Abstract:We compared two ways of remote participation in a meeting. One in which a video-connection existed between the remote participant and the collocated participants and one in which the remote participant was represented by an iCat. We asked the participants to rate the conversations on various dimensions. The remote participants tended to prefer the meetings with the iCat whereas the co-located participants preferred the video connection on most dimensions.
