Abstract: In this paper we propose an approach based on social network analysis facilitated by ontologies for the support of learning group formation in computer supported collaborative and blended learning scenarios. This approach allows us to generate new ties between learners who are interested in similar topics. The identification of similar topics is elaborated dynamically by using a shared workspace environment which supports visual editing and modeling of topic relationships.
