When students are responsible for their own collaborative learning process, they need information on collaboration to manage the process. We note that collaborative environments fail to provide users with information on the collaboration process. This research proposes an open collaborative learning experience design that provides learners with an environment where they can manage the collaboration. The design provides information on collaboration to improve management. An inferring method, which uses statistical indicators of student interaction in forums and data mining technology, works to obtain information on student collaboration and groups students according to their level of collaboration. This information will be shown to students and tutors to improve the learning process and its management.
