  •  Introduction

    Studying the synchronous computer-supported collaboration at scale requires significant technological infrastructure to enable the collaboration and to record the collaboration process data. Educational Testing Service (ETS) has made a major investment in developing a web-based platform, ETS platform for collaborative assessment and learning (EPCAL), to support research studies on computer-supported collaboration. The EPCAL allows multimodal communication, team management, modularized item/task uploading, customizable real-time facilitation/intervention, and captures all the process data during the collaboration. Most importantly, it is integrated with powerful data analytics support from ETS’s glassPy data analytics framework. All these features make EPCAL an ideal tool for computer-supported collaborative research at scale. In this workshop, we will introduce EPCAL and itscapabilities through hands-on collaborative activities, and encourage participants to consider using EPCAL for their research on collaboration at scale.
