The objective of PROLIX is to align learning with business processes in order to enable organisations to faster improve the competencies of their employees according to continuous changes of business requirements. PROLIX supports a complete learning process life cycle comprising 1. the analysis of complex business situations; 2. the identification of individual and organisational learning goals; 3. the analysis of competencies and their matching with individual skills; 4. the definition of appropriate learning strategies and the simulation of competency-oriented processes; 5. the execution of improved learning processes; 6. the monitoring of learners' performance according to the goals defined.
Therefore, PROLIX will develop a process- and competency driven framework for interlinking business process intelligence tools on the one hand with knowledge management and learning environments on the other.
In order to demonstrate its concept, PROLIX sets up three test beds in different fields of application. The team will specify, design, implement and start to demonstrate its tools and services in relatively mature environments, which are a 'Government test bed' with the UK Government Care Programme (Social Care Institute for Excellence), a 'Telecom test bed' with British Telecom (BT) learning, and an 'Educational publishing test bed' with the publishing houses Klett and EDITIS.
PROLIX unites 19 partners from nine different countries made up of two leading European software vendors for learning management (imc Germany) and Learning Content Management (Giunti Interactive), the largest independent European business process management company (IDS Scheer), leading European research partners in learning technology, didactics and cognition as well as technology-enhanced learning software architecture.
PROLIX wants to open to the learning solutions industry in Europe the potential to better integrate its solutions in business process architectures.
