Evaluating learners in terms of collaboration capabilities in a collaborative e-learning session can be quantified based on several parameters. These parameters include learner's contribution in the collaborative e-learning session. They also include learner's collaboration history in collaborative e-learning sessions and the collaboration capabilities of the group in which he participates. These parameters can be used as inputs to a model that generates a set of recommendations for the next step that should be taken towards the e-learning objectives. These recommendations can be used to enroll the learner in an e-learning session that best fits his collaboration capabilities. In this paper, a fuzzy inference system is introduced to estimate learner's collaboration in terms of a proposed metric called collaboration-index. This index can be utilized to guide the e-learning system for advising the learner to the best choice of the next collaborative e-learning session. Simulation study has been carried out to evaluate the performance of the proposed strategy. Simulation results show that the proposed strategy provides a positive impact on collaborative e-learning environments.
