This paper describes an experiment investigating interactions in a big forum in order to support students in learning English. Groups of collaborating users form communities that generate a lot of data that can be analyzed. We distinguish different phases of the self-regulated learning process and aim to identify them in learners’ activities. Then we attempt to recognize patterns of their behavior and consequently their roles in a community. Based on this analysis we try to explain a success or failure of a community. We conclude that heterogeneity of members helps a learning community to function.
