Abstract: To help monitoring and controlling the latent social dynamics associated with leadership, we test a methodological approach that makes use of computational techniques to mine the content of online communications and analyze group structure to identify students who behave as leaders. The results allow us to quantify each individual's contribution and summarize their engagement in the form of a leadership index. The proposed methodology is fully automated and has the potential to be easily replicable. The summary offered by the leadership index is intended as actionable information that can guide just-in-time interventions to help sustain student engagement.
