This study aims to explore two crucial aspects of collaborative work and learning: the importance of enabling CSCL applications, on the one hand, to capture and structure the information generated by group activity and, on the other hand, to extract the relevant knowledge in order to provide learners and tutors with efficient awareness and support as regards collaboration. To this end, we first identify and define the main types of information generated in on-line group activity and then propose a process for efficiently embedding this information and the knowledge extracted from it into CSCL applications for awareness and feedback purposes. The conceptual model proposed finally gave rise to the design and implementation of a CSCL generic platform, called the Collaborative Learning Purpose Library (CLPL), which serves as a basis for the systematic development of collaborative learning applications and for providing full support to the mentioned process of knowledge management.
