Abstract: Tracking interactions on Collaborative Learning Environments (CLEs), with an increasing number of collaborative tools, offering a real time support for learners, is one of the most intense and exhaustive challenges that online teachers face. The main objective of this work is to present Amadeus-SIMM, a tool that monitors synchronous and asynchronous collaborative tools and analyses behaviors related to the group, like cohesion and heterogeneity, and related to each student, like isolation degree, intermediation degree, prestige and engagement degrees, in order to offer a teaching presence support.
