Collaborative learning activities can raise students’ motivation and help them to achieve better results. Faced with many available tools that support these activities, teachers need to choose the most suitable one. This paper presents a criterion-based procedure for selection of a Web 2.0 tool for collaborative activities in the domain of process modeling. The procedure defined a set consisting of domain specific criteria and general criteria important for assessing Web 2.0 tools for any application domain. The importance of each attribute included in the criteria is expressed numerically using weights. The established criteria are applied to nine Web 2.0 tools intended for diagramming in order to select a tool that will be used for process modeling education as part of the e-learning environment consisting of Moodle LMS and the educational recommender system ELARS.
