Abstract

Analyzing group collaboration problems for online group work has become a complex task for a teacher who is responsible for checking the progress of the group work that is examined. This is because various methods are desirable for ascertaining the existence of different collaboration problems. Along with the increasing use of online collaboration, there is a growing need to improve the delivery methods and to simplify how teachers monitor collaborative activities. In this paper a novel diagnostic mechanism and tool are presented for supporting the analysis of major types of group collaboration problems. This research has further implications for extending existing collaborative learning environments in order to automatically monitor collaborative processes for online group work.
