An important but often neglected aspect in Computer Supported Collaborative Learning is the intelligent formation of learning groups. Until recently, support for group formation was mostly based on learner profile information. However, the perspective of ubiquitous computing and ambient intelligence allows for taking a broader view on group formation, extending the range of features to include learner context information such as sensor-derived activity and availability. A probabilistic approach has been developed that automatically learns individual characteristics and indicates relevant situations, and which has been tested in a set of experiments.
