    Collaboration is an important 21st century skill; it can take place in a remote or co-located setting. Co-located collaboration (CC) gives rise to subtle human interactions that can be described with multimodal indicators like gaze, speech and social skills. In this demo paper, we first give a brief overview of related work that has identified indicators during CC. Then, we look briefly at the feedback mechanisms that have been designed based on these indicators to facilitate CC. Using these theoretical insights, we design a prototype to give automated real-time feedback to facilitate CC taking the help of the most abundant modality during CC i.e., audio cues.
