In modern society the employees of complex organizations are under pressure to constantly improve their knowledge and skills. Novel approaches and tools to support effective and efficient workplace learning in collaborative and engaging ways are needed. On the other hand, Business Process Management (BPM) is more and more employed to support and manage the complex processes carried out within organizations. BPM can be used as well to guide workplace learning, with the advantage of naturally aligning training tasks to real tasks. We introduce a specification of learning path that maps BPM tasks and activities into sequences of learning tasks. Our learning path specification can thus be used to both drive learning sessions carried out by simulation, and to inform a monitor that can assess learner's progress. The goal is to combine work and learning in natural and effective way and use available business monitoring techniques to monitor the learning progress of the learners. In the paper we describe our specification, the e-learning platform under development, and the approach to derive monitoring rules. The approach is illustrated through a simple motivational example.
