A BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT BASED VIRTUAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT - Customised Learning Paths

Ayodeji Adesina, Derek Molloy

Abstract

Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) such as Moodle help facilitate the management of educational courses for students, in particular by helping lecturers with course administration and students manage their own learning. However, problems still remain; in particular, e-learning environments provide a “one size fits all” approach to the learning process, where each student must follow the same learning path through course materials, regardless of their prior knowledge, learning requirements or of possible learning disabilities. This paper presents the development of an e-learning system based on Business Process Management (BPM) concepts, principles and technologies, which are used by the enterprise business community for managing workflow. The developed system allows for the creation of customised learning paths through course materials in a blended pedagogical approach within a custom VLE.
