Abstract

The importance of technical and didactical improvement of educational processes has grown in the last decades. Even though technical standards have strongly progressed, there is still a great field of undiscovered potentials. This paper responds to the need of discovering new technical potentials in process analysis in combination with the importance gaining field of e-learning. The mainly recent technology of process mining offers new options for effective process analysis and improvement. To accelerate and improve e-learning processes it could contribute to the competitive advantages of companies and educational institutions. Although process mining has already been discussed in scientific research, it has not yet been treated in combination with e-learning processes. This paper aims to give an insight into possible benefits of process mining for e-learning processes using an approach of rule-based control.
