Interactivity
Across the many fields concerned with INTERACTIVITY, including information science , computer science , human-computer interaction , communication , and industrial design , there is little agreement over the meaning of the term INTERACTIVITY, although all are related to interaction with computers and other machines with a user interface . Multiple views on interactivity exist. In the "contingency view" of interactivity, there are three levels: * Not interactive, when a message is not related to previous messages; * Reactive, when a message is related only to one immediately previous message; and * Interactive, when a message is related to a number of previous messages and to the relationship between them. One body of research has made a strong distinction between interaction and interactivity. As the suffix 'ity' is used to form nouns that denote a quality or condition, this body of research has defined interactivity as the 'quality or condition of interaction'
