With the arrival and extending acclaim for machine Supported Collaborative studying (CSCL) and e-learning applied sciences, the necessity of automatic evaluation andof teacher/tutor support for the 2 tightly intertwined actions of comprehension of studying fabrics and of collaboration between friends has grown considerably. during this context, a polyphonic version of discourse derived from Bakhtin’s paintings as a paradigm is used for examining either common texts and CSCL conversations in a different framework inquisitive about diverse points of textual cohesion.

As specificity of our research, the individual learning point of view is concentrated at the id of analyzing ideas and on offering a multi-dimensional textual complexity version, while the collaborative learning size is based at the review of members’ involvement, in addition to on collaboration assessment.

Our technique according to complex ordinary Language Processing strategies offers a qualitative estimation of the training strategy and complements figuring out as a “mediator of studying” via supplying automatic suggestions to either beginners and lecturers or tutors. the most advantages are its flexibility, extensibility and however specificity for overlaying a number of phases, ranging from interpreting school room fabrics, to discussing on particular themes in a collaborative demeanour and completing the suggestions loop by means of verbalizing metacognitive thoughts.

It seems that the dialog (which implies real-time, synchronous inter-change of utterances) using short textual messages fits naturally the needs of a large number of users. Although most times chat-like technologies are used only for socialization and similar activities, they have also been adopted in education. In informal learning, discussions between the members of communities of practice often take place using chats. Nevertheless, instant messaging determined a change in the way collaborative work is regarded, becoming a viable alternative to the classic view of learning: Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) (Stahl 2006b) that advocates for the use of chats as a supplement for standard teaching and learning strategies (Stahl 2006b).
