This paper presents a conversations on social media (e.g., wordpress, Twitter, and Facebook) discusses learning experiences— opinions, feelings, and concerns about the learning process. A social network is a set of people (or organizations or other social entities) connected by a set of social relationships, such as friendship, co-working or information exchange. Social network analysis focuses on the analysis of patterns of relationships among people, organizations, states and such social entities. Social network analysis provides both a visual and a mathematical analysis of human relationships. In this paper, we analyzed a workflow to integrate both qualitative analysis and large-scale data mining techniques. We focused on engineering students’ Twitter posts to understand issues and problems in their educational experiences.
