Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Informatik - Internet, neue Technologien, Universität Hamburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Ausarbeitung befasst sich mit dem Thema Computational Soical Network Analysis. Ziel ist es, dem Leser einen Einblick in diese Thematik zu verschaffen. Dabei werden Hintergründe, anwendbare Methoden und Tools vorgestellt, die hierbei Verwendung finden. Zunächst wird dabei näher auf den Hintergrund, also warum dieses Gebiet als Forschungsgegenstand so interessant ist, eingegangen. Anschließend werden verschiedene Aspekte, die man im Rahmen der Analyse sozialer Netzwerke untersuchen kann benannt. In diesem Zusammenhang werden auch zwei verschiedene Kategorien zur formalen Analyse benannt. Zur Verdeutlichung wird die Verwendung dieser am Ende des Kapitels auch noch einmal anhand eines Praxisbeispiels gezeigt. Das nächste Kapitel befasst sich mit der Fragstellung, wie Schlüsselfiguren in Netzwerken ermittelt werden können und was für Rollen diese spielen. Dabei werden auch die verschiedenen Arten von Schlüsselfiguren benannt. Eine weitere zentrale Rolle in der Analyse sozialer Netzwerke nehmen Gruppen ein. Die Bedeutung von Gruppen und wie man sie ermitteln kann wird im nächsten Kapitel erläutert. Aufbauend auf den Gruppen sollen Interaktionen innerhalb von Netzwerken untersucht werden. Hierfür werden zunächst die nötigen Werkzeuge, wie die SCAN oder DISSECT Methode vorgestellt und anschließend die Einsatzgebiete anhand von Beispielen verdeutlicht. Im 7. Kapitel wird eine eLearning Plattform näher betrachtet. Hierbei werden zunächst die Eigenschaften und Besonderheiten von eLearning Plattformen beschrieben und anschießend anhand eines Praxisbeispiels verschiedene Methoden zur Analyse sozialer Netzwerke angewendet.
