LIP (Learning In Process)
LIP (Learning In Process) is a European research project (IST Program, IST-2001-32518).
The final goal of the LIP project is the creation of an integrated system of e-learning elements that facilitates to the users a complete contextualisation of the learning process referring to an organisation and its need in real time.
The LIP project intends to empower individuals to define, procure (in a proactive way depending on particular role and task of the users) and manage their own learning for work within an organisational context, which offers rich sources for inferring user needs.
The development of a learning-on-demand system with a strong link to knowledge management and human resource systems has collateral implications in a number of areas. These include a matching system that follows the changes in the formal role of an individual in an organisation, a dynamic profiling of the user's activities to optimise the level of sophistication of the learning suggested to the user by the system, knowledge exchange support via an XML e-learning schema (ontology) that facilitates exchange of learning objects among communities and among organisations, and a preliminary business model that supports external mentors (tutors) to act as learning facilitators when appropriate.
