Intelligent Collaborative e-Learning Systems and Applications is a major research theme in CSCL and CSCW research community. It comprises a variety of research topics that focus on developing systems that are more powerful and flexible and also more adaptable to the learning process and thus provide better answers to the paradigmatic principles of on-line collaborative learning and work. The chapters collected in this book provide new insights, findings and approaches both on the analysis and the development of more powerful e-collaboration settings. Researchers will find in this book the latest trends in these research topics. On the other hand, academics will find practical insights on how to use conceptual and experimental approaches in their daily tasks. Finally, developers from CSCL community can be inspired and put in practice the proposed models and evaluate them for the specific purposes of their own work and context.
