Interaction through Online Forum and Its Analytical Study Using Text Mining
Keywords:Cluster analysis, e-learning, forum conversation, Online discussion
This research study proposes a cluster analysis of discussion forums using a text mining technique which uses a graph formalism to represent relevant terms found in a text, as well as their relationships. In proposed approach is based on the comparison of graphs. Students centered methods, such discussion are more effective in developing higher order of intellectual skills and problem solving skills. This research process the intervention in which teachers try to mediate the debate by motivating and challenging those who posted the relevant contributions and to participate more. This research results using text mining approaches where to concentrate. The discussion forum students follow general discussions, contributions and to had better understand how to mediate forums discussions as to support students learning.
