Collaborative multimedia learning is a scenario that places various demands on the learners. On the one hand, individuals have to interrelate multiple external representations mentally, in order to understand the representations and the underlying concepts; on the other hand, learners acquire representational knowledge during collaboration and have to use multiple external representations to exchange conceptual knowledge. In this paper, the development and experimental evaluation of a tool is presented that is intended to simultaneously support both individual and collaborative learning processes during collaborative multimedia learning.
