Interactive media is a buzz word in current creative industry, but many of related fields have different understanding of the meaning of "interaction" in interactive media. This aspect is often the cause of difficulties communication and becomes an obstacle to joint researches. Thus this study attempts to develop a theoretical categorization of the meanings of interaction in interactive media. For this, this study first gathered various interpretations about what is interaction and build a rough classification. Then the classification is supplemented and amended over three times through FGIs of the interactive media related experts. This theoretical categorization is expected to help smooth cross-disciplinary studies and integrated technology development in interactive media.
