When Internet users search for information, surf on websites or discuss with others, their actions are driven by certain goals. Extraction of users' goals can enable higher effectiveness and accuracy of web services. Supporting users in based on their goals can be highly beneficial, especially supporting of learners in the preparation for an exam as a learning process, Different phases of learning are identified when users learn collaboratively. We scrutinize how goals are constructed and achieved within a community, examining not only social activities based on patterns of behavior, but also emotions and intents users express in their posts. As a result we elicit users’ goals. We achieved good accuracy in defining emotions of users and recognizing their intents and social patterns in our case. Here we discuss how the obtained results contribute to mining of learning community goals.
