Interaction analysis of dual interaction CSCL environments

Çakır, Murat Perit
Stahl, Gerry
In order to collaborate effectively in group discourse on a topic like mathematical patterns, group participants must organize their activities so that they have a shared understanding of the significance of their utterances, inscriptions and behaviors—adequate for sustaining productive interaction. The need for participants to coordinate their actions becomes particularly salient in dual-interaction environments, where, e.g., chat postings and graphical drawings must work together; analysts of such interactions must identify the subtle and complex ways in which meaning making proceeds. This paper considers the methodological requirements on analyzing interaction in dual-interaction environments by reviewing several exemplary CSCL studies. It reflects on the nature of social organization, grounding and indexicality that frame the interaction to be analyzed.

Online collaboration: Collaborative behavior patterns and factors affecting globally distributed team performance
Serce, Fatma Cemile; Swigger, Kathleen; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Brazile, Robert; Dafoulas, George; Lopez, Victor (2011-01-01)
Studying the collaborative behavior of online learning teams and how this behavior is related to communication mode and task type is a complex process. Research about small group learning suggests that a higher percentage of social interactions occur in synchronous rather than asynchronous mode, and that students spend more time in task-oriented interaction in asynchronous discussions than in synchronous mode. This study analyzed the collaborative interaction patterns of global software development learning...
Black box groups and related group theoretic constructions
Yalçınkaya, Şükrü; Berkman, Ayşe; Department of Mathematics (2007)
The present thesis aims to develop an analogy between the methods for recognizing a black box group and the classification of the finite simple groups. We propose a uniform approach for recognizing simple groups of Lie type which can be viewed as the computational version of the classification of the finite simple groups. Similar to the inductive argument on centralizers of involutions which plays a crucial role in the classification project, our approach is based on a recursive construction of the centrali...
Positive impact of state similarity on reinforcement learning performance
Girgin, Sertan; Polat, Faruk; Alhaj, Reda (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2007-10-01)
In this paper, we propose a novel approach to identify states with similar subpolicies and show how they can be integrated into the reinforcement learning framework to improve learning performance. The method utilizes a specialized tree structure to identify common action sequences of states, which are derived from possible optimal policies, and defines a similarity function between two states based on the number of such sequences. Using this similarity function, updates on the action-value function of a st...
Interpretable spatio-temporal networks for modeling and forecasting societal events
Ertuğrul, Ali Mert; Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba; Department of Information Systems (2019)
The relationships between individual activities and societal events (e.g. migrations, social movements) are complex due to the various social, temporal and spatial factors. Understanding such relationships in the context of various societal events such as street protests and opioid crisis, and forecasting these events are important as they have great impacts on public policies and supporting decision making of authorities. In this thesis, novel, spatio-temporal, deep neural networks are proposed (i) to fore...
Organizational structures and networks of four Islamıst/Islamic women's NGOs in Turkey : in the context of new social movement
Küçükoğlu, Lütfiye Sevinç; Rittersberger Tılıç, Helga İda; Department of Sociology (2004)
The main purpose of this study is to understand the organizational structures of Islamist/Islamic women̕s NGOs and explain the network mechanisms of them in the context of new social movements. This study is based on a social movement research; thus, both organizational structures and network mechanisms of Islamist/Islamic women̕s NGOs are explained and analyzed in terms of the features of new social movements, to answer the question of ءwhether Islamist/Islamic women̕s NGOs are potential and possible actor...
