SAMSA logo


SAMSA is a tool that enables the analysis of participatory aspects of collaborative learning. SAMSA enables non-experts to perform social network analysis of groups. It takes data from log files that comply with a standarized format (common format). It allows the user to configure the network in a flexible way, and computes a set of indexes and shows a sociogram representing the network(see below).

SAMSA is a research work of the Intelligent & Cooperative Systems Research Group (GSIC). This software is developed and maintained by Alejandra Martínez Monés and Jose Antonio Marcos-García.
