Abstract: This paper deals with collaborative learning processes in a technology-enhanced learning environment and claims that a fully fledged technological support for management of such processes is still missing. To back up that claim the paper introduces an analysis framework for the evaluation of the state-of-the-art in technology-supported management of learning processes. This evaluation clearly reveals deficiencies in such a support and points out possible approaches for resolving the identified problems and drawbacks. As one of such approaches, this paper discusses possibilities of using the Business Process Management (BPM) technology for the management of collaborative learning processes.

Keywords: learning process; collaboration; learning processes; management; business process management; BPM; collaborative learning; technology-enhanced learning.
