We present a work-in-progress visualization tool for facilitation of multi-user online collaboration over text-, voice-, and video-chats. The idea is based on graphical representation of the key concepts of the conversation, e.g. objectives, rationale, important facts, etc. Such visualization promotes goal-oriented and productive teamwork, and improves interactive user experience. The proposed idea is developed in Java, as a modification of Jitsi, an open source IM client.
