Interactive analysis is the research focus of computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL). At present, the academe hasn’t reached consensus on which aspects should be analyzed. Based on the interpretation of activity system by activity theory, this paper presents an integrated model TSP (composed of Topic Space, Social Relationship and Process Pattern), which is the theoretical framework of the interactive analysis of CSCL, and also advocates introducing correlative research results in the field of computer to analyze and model the interaction of CSCL in terms of three aspects of TSP.
