Typing-Differences in Simultaneous Typed Chat
Full-duplex conversation where everybody can talk and hear at the same time is made possible by typed-chat computer-mediated communication. This experiment examines typing logs from students engaging in overlapping dialogue chat in small-group problem-solving sessions. When students are typing in the presence of overlapping dialogue there are measurable differences in their typing behavior. A difference measured here is text-deletion behavior. Deletions increase in the simultaneous typing regime. The reasons for this difference remain to be explored.
