Abstract: Social Networks Adapting Pedagogical Practice (SNAPP) is a social network graphic tool that can be used in conjunction with learning management systems to create a visual representation of relationships between participants in online discussions. SNAPP can serve as a diagnostic instrument to identify isolated students, instructor-centric communication, and community formation.
