Hi. I am part of a team at the American University
conducting research on the effectiveness of CU-SeeMe for
collaborative work. After several observations of team
problem solving tasks using CU-SeeMe, our initial findings
show that the learning curve is steeper than anticipated and
users become easily frustrated with technical problems.

I would appreciate any feedback on the following questions:

* Do you view the software as a collaborative tool?
* What are some of the benefits?
* What are some of the limitations?
* Can you compare CU-SeeMe to working or learning
in-person or in-class?
* Any general comments?

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinions with me.
