Process mining results can be enhanced by adding semantic knowledge to the derived models. Information discovered due to semantic enrichment of the deployed process models can be used to lift process analysis from syntactic level to a more conceptual level. The work in this paper corroborates that semantic-based process mining is a useful technique towards improving the information value of derived models from the large volume of event logs about any process domain. We use a case study of

Our goal is to extract streams of event logs from a learning execution environment and describe formats that allows for mining and improved process analysis of the captured data. The approach involves mapping of the resulting learning model derived from mining event data about a learning process by semantically annotating the process elements with concepts they represent in real time using process descriptions languages, and linking them to an ontology specifically designed for representing learning processes. The semantic analysis allows the meaning of the learning objects to be enhanced through the use of property characteristics and classification of discoverable entities, to generate inference knowledge which are used to determine useful learning patterns by means of the Semantic Learning Process Mining (SLPM) algorithm -technically described as Semantic-Fuzzy Miner. To this end, we show how data from learning processes are being extracted, semantically prepared, and transformed into mining executable formats to enable prediction of individual learning patterns through further semantic analysis of the discovered models.
