Social network analysis used for modelling collaboration in Distance Learning groups

Abstract : We describe a situation of distance learning based on collaborative production occurring within groups over a significant time span. For such a situation, we suggest giving priority to monitoring and not to guiding systems. We also argue that we need models which are easily computable in order to deal with the heterogeneous and the large scale amount of data related to interactions, i.e. models relying on theoretical assumptions which characterise the structures of groups and of interactions. Social Network Analysis is a good candidate we applied to our experiment in order to compute communication graphs and cohesion factors in groups. This application represents an essential part of a system which would enable tutors to detect a problem or a slowdown of group interaction.
