Applications that provide a graphical visualization of individuals engaged in on-line chatting may provide a novel insight into the processes and ultimate success of academically focused discussions within an enterprise learning management system. This prototype provides an insight into student-professor and student-student interaction based upon a time-based graphical representation of the social networks in action. It is a challenge to quickly monitor the effectiveness of discussion forums within large enrolment online classes. Visualization tools may help.
