Abstract

Social networks and project-led education are two research topics that have been increasing over the last years. This paper is focused on application of social network analysis on a social network-based project, developed for an engineering course of University of Minho, which followed the project-led education methodology. The study aims at analyzing the importance of adapting social network analysis techniques to evaluate students that work on social network- based projects. The results showed the ties between the participants and enabled the identification of the project and students’ behavior, features relevant for evaluation of the students’ work, as well as for the project’s structure and organization design and management.
