S-BPM Education on the Dalton Plan: An E-Learning Approach

  • Georg Weichhart
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 284)

Abstract

S-BPM (Subject-oriented Business Process Management) is a new communication oriented approach to Business Process Management. Because of its novelty, good approaches to education are required. Guided by theory in this paper a didactic approach is identified. It is argued that the chosen Dalton Plan pedagogic is suitable to form a basis for modern constructivist e-learning. The paper showcases the e-learning platform nymphaea which integrates Dalton Plan assignments and exemplifies the presented approach and tool using the s-bpm live cycle.
