Abstract

In this design briefing, we introduce the Learn-B environment, our attempt in designing and implementing a research prototype to address some of the challenges inherent in workplace learning: the informal aspect of workplace learning requires knowledge workers to be supported in their self-regulatory learning (SRL) processes, whilst its social nature draws attention to the role of collective in those processes. Moreover, learning at workplace is contextual and on-demand, thus requiring organizations to recognize and motivate the learning and knowledge building activities of their employees, where individual learning goals are harmonized with those of the organization. In particular, we focus on the analytics-based features of Learn-B, illustrate their design and current implementation, and discuss how each of them is hypothesized to target the above challenges.
