Debate in the field of event-based analysis of collaborative process data has focused on how best to account for the temporal nature of processes. We reanalyzed data from an online learning environment that included multiple tool use (chat and wiki) in synchronous and asynchronous collaborative settings. In this paper we modeled decision-making, and used time to identify four patterns of tool use to make decisions: single chat, multiple chat, chat/s and follow-up wiki, and integrated. Each pattern of tool use was associated with a unique process model, which indicated the affordances of each tool for that particular activity. The examination of the integrated use of tools, and the integrated decision-making process in a collaborative online setting has implications for designers, instructors and researchers.
