Formatted Abstract/Summary
This poster details the development of a tool that integrates with common commercial and open source Learning Management Systems (LMS) to deliver real-time social network visualisations of discussion forum activity. The tool has aptly been named Social Networks Adapting Pedagogical Practice (SNAPP), because it allows academic staff to identify patterns of student behaviour and facilitate appropriate interventions as required. SNAPP has been designed with the aim of mainstreaming the use of social network analysis as a real-time diagnostic instrument. A unique and non-conventional Web 2.0 approach to LMS extension development has been employed to enable cross system (Blackboard, WebCT and Moodle), web browser (Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer) and platform (PC and Mac) support. Current features and future enhancements are outlined.
