Abstract

Generally, the current E-Learning systems concentrate on individual learning tasks rather than on a learning process. However, learning situations as we observed them in practice are generally process-oriented. Thus, support for such process-oriented learning situations can be seen as one of the most important requirements for the next generation of E-Learning systems. Fulfilling such a requirement raises a number of technical issues such as management of learning processes including their modeling, design and execution as well as the automation of such processes. This paper discusses possibilities for applying Business Process Management in E-Learning systems for that purpose. This discussion is summarized as a list of requirements on both Business Process Management systems and E-Learning systems for realization of such an application. Finally, the paper sketches shortly some implementation issues that can arise in practice.
