    Abstract

    Integration of social networking practices makes it possible to create a learning community in international settings. In order to meaningfully integrate this kind of technology, it is essential to assess what is actually being achieved among participants. This paper proposes a method to utilize a concept map in an on-line discussion. The result indicates that it can be used for the purpose of reflecting that collaborative knowledge is being constructed during and after the discussion.
