title = From Educational modelling languages to Stochastic Petri Net modelling for E-learning technologies analysis;
abstract = Training and learning methods have been greatly improved thanks to the use of E-learning technologies, and have reached a large public including companies’ staff, remote and foreign students. Many works have been proposed in the literature in the field of E-learning research so that to allow actors to work with more efficiency and more effectiveness. These recent works focus more and more on educational modelling languages and object learning modelling languages. Among these languages, EML language (Educational Modelling Language) has been introduced for modelling learning processes, and on the other hand, the LOM (Learning Object Metadata) and IMS (Instructional Management Systems) specifications have been defined for modelling teaching resources (objects). In this article, we will present an approach for the design and performance evaluation of an e-learning platform, by first using a mixture of the two languages LOM and EML, then, modelling the platform with Stochastic Petri Net models. The modelling is proposed in order to analyse learning processes of the platform. We will see that this Petri net model can provide an efficient way to evaluate an e-learning platform.
