In the last few years, the Social Web has offered new affordances for how learning is conceptualized and supported. Supporting workplace learning, however, faces specific challenges, some in particular due to its informal, contextual and social nature. The informal nature of workplace learning requires knowledge workers to be supported in their self-regulatory learning processes, whilst the social side draws attention to the role of collective in those processes. To address these challenges, in this paper we present Learn-B, a workplace learning environment. We also present how we developed and applied a common ontological foundation for the integration of our proposed learning services and existing tools in this environment.
