Communities of practice (CoP) are nowadays widely used for implementing collaborative learning approaches, under the scope of contemporary learning theories. Several communication and/or collaboration web modules are used in order to support the organizational structure and facilitate the operational purpose of such communities. Following the same approach, scientific networks (SN) are widely used as a common method of expanding research and sharing academic resources. The need for appropriate tools in order to support the members of a CoP or a SN and further facilitate their collaborative tasks, or even resulted learning is often highlighted by the literature. In this paper we propose the use of Interaction Analysis indicators for that matter. Our experience from the implementation of such indicators, supporting the kaleidoscope network of excellence is presented.
