Abstract

In model-driven learning, simulation of Business Process is a key step for improving the learners's skills and enhancing teaching performance. In this paper, we provide the architectural design and the main functionalities of a model-based learning simulation framework. The main objectives of the proposed framework are: i) enable user-friendly learning simulation with a strong support for collaboration and social interactions; ii) provide a process-driven learning environment that allows emulation of the learner behavior when no learners are available to be involved on the simulation; iii) include event-based monitoring aiming at providing feedbacks for the learner assessment.
