Novak, J; Schmidt, S (2009). When joy matters: the importance of hedonic stimulation in collocated collaboration with large-displays. In: INTERACT 2009, Uppsala, Sweden, 24 August 2009 - 28 August 2009, 618-629.

Hedonic aspects are increasingly considered as an important factor in
user acceptance of information systems, especially for activities with high
self-fulfilling value for the users. In this paper we report on the results of an experiment
investigating the hedonic qualities of an interactive large-display
workspace for collocated collaboration in sales-oriented travel advisory. The results
show a higher hedonic stimulation quality of a touch-based large-display
travel advisory workspace than that of a traditional workspace with catalogues.
Together with the feedback of both customers and travel agents this suggests
the adequacy of using touch-based large-displays with visual workspaces for
supporting the hedonic stimulation of user experience in collocated collaboration
settings. The relation of high perception of hedonic quality to positive emotional
attitudes towards the use of a large-display workspace indicates that even
in utilitarian activities (e.g. reaching sales goals for travel agents) hedonic
aspects can play an important role. This calls for reconsidering the traditional
divide of hedonic vs. utilitarian systems in current literature, to a more balanced
view towards systems which provide both utilitarian and hedonic sources of
value to the user.
