International Workshop on Process- and context-driven eLearning (PCeL) 2006

18. 04. 2006

Call for Papers
International Workshop on “Process- and context-driven eLearning (PCeL) 2006"

in conjunction with
“The First International Conference on Interactive Mobile and Computer Aided Learning (IMCL) 2006“

at the
Princess Sumaya University for Technology, Amman/Jordan. April 19th-21st 2006.

+++ Focus +++

The future challenge of eLearning and workplace learning consists in the development of interoperable and service-oriented TEL/IT-architectures, that interlink eLearning to knowledge management systems and other relevant enterprise-wide information systems, therefore enable the dynamic accumulation of eLearning content with up-to-date information in an organizational-, individual- and application specific way. Beyond that, strategies, concepts and methods have to be developed and provided, that contribute to the satisfaction of heterogeneous learning and knowledge needs.

IT-supported mechanisms for the composition of systematic interaction and interchange relations, as well as the creation of effective concepts for the measurement of learning phases will complete the concept. The workshops approach experiences an expansion by the intelligent and context-sensitive distribution of relevant knowledge to the “point of business process execution”. Through the stronger decentralization and dissociation from physical infrastructures by mobile technologies, an area-wide information and content supply by interacting knowledge systems can take place. In distributed organizations one has to think about a multi-channel support with information and flanking education measures, real time information about status of processing and availability as well as other dynamic contents. Intelligent controlling concepts and tools for the technology supported transfer of current knowledge and education measures to the learner’s interface, which account for the respective appropriate infrastructure, are necessary.

+++ Objectives +++

  • Approaches, methodologies and IT-tools for aligning business processes with (adaptive workplace) Learning, including interoperability of knowledge supporting systems and service-oriented architectures for TEL.
  • Measurement of the impact of training on the business process execution.
  • Challenges and pitfalls of IT-solutions for the integration of mobile technologies into organizational and personalized adaptive learning environments, such as multi-channel access to learning environment via broad-band-infrastructures (like UMTS) and protocols (e.g. DVB-H).
  • Metadata harmonization for the retrieval of context relevant learning objects from distributed sources.

+++ Target Groups +++

  • Researchers from the fields of Business Administration, Computer Science and Pedagogy.
  • Representatives of industry (vendors, providers, users).

+++ Submission +++
