research, the collaborative process is of central importance. Thus, this
seminar aims to unveil learners’ interaction patterns through analyzing the context
of questions in discussion transcripts. Based on assumptions about data source
and users’ operation processes in analyzing the context of questions, several
design principles have been identified. Guided by these principles, a technical
solution is presented to implement a tool for analyzing the context of
questions. By incorporating text classification and information visualization
technologies, the tool supports the analysis of the content and structure of discussion
transcripts to generate visual patterns in the form of 5W1H context of
questioning. In this way, the tool enables users to understand interaction
patterns in an intuitive and friendly manner.
