Abstract

This paper presents an agent based approach for social network analysis of collaborative learning through computer mediated communication system. We aim to study and investigate the collaborative behavior of students for the class situation control and the further assessment. A group of agents is designed to work collaboratively in order to help the instructor to keep track of all taking place activities and investigate the collaborative behavior based on the fundamental concept of social network analysis. One agent in the group called Social Network Analyst agent has the main role to provide the appropriate responses to the class so that students will be able to control the collaboration themselves and additionally to help the instructor obtain the information for the further assessment of collaborative behavior.
