Abstract: Although the tools for mediating Internet-based learning communities have exploded in the last few years, our theoretical understanding of how to evaluate attempts to build online communities has lagged behind (Carroll, 2001). We used automated tools to build social network maps of an educational children's multi-user virtual environment using two modes of CMC. Internal "E-mail" was most frequently used within groups. Short "telegram" messages were frequently used within groups but also provided between-group interaction.
