Collaboration and knowledge sharing in small teams is very usual not only in education but also in industry, in gaming and in our lives. Interdisciplinary teams are formed and their members are expected to collaborate, exploit their capabilities and know-how towards achieving a common goal. In this work we explore whether parameters associated with the development of Transactive Memory System (TMS) can be reflected in a 3D virtual world. People from diverse background and profession brought together in teams to work towards completing an assigned task within a 3D virtual world. The results show strong associations between the parameters of a TMS, collaboration activities and communication scales examined.
