Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning

Participant : Jacques Lonchamp.

In the CSCL field the collaborative situation is constructed by teachers in order to produce specific interactions that trigger learning processes. Defining a collaborative learning situation is complex and multi-faceted. It may include a structured process, structured interaction protocols, structured artifacts and ad hoc monitoring processes.

For several years we have developed a generic CSCL kernel for supporting synchronous collaborative learning applications following the dual interaction space paradigm (task space and communication space), called Omega+. Its main characteristic is an explicit representation of the four facets evoked above [52] .

This year our works concern the monitoring of synchronous collaborative learning processes (for coaching and self-guidance) [11] , post mortem analysis of synchronous collaborative learning traces [10] and the relationships between these two aspects. These proposals are illustrated by experiments with real students working in small groups with Omega+ during object-oriented modeling courses.
