Abstract

This study aims at applying social network analysis (SNA) to establishing indicators for collective knowledge advancement. To do so, a SNA application, KBDeX, was developed and the effectiveness of several indicators was examined by applying them to an evaluation of students' discourse. Results indicated that SNA with our proposed indicators might quantitatively capture the collective knowledge advancement.
