While learner-centric theories such as self-regulated learning (SRL) seem appropriate to inform the design of e-learning systems aiming at enhancing learner’s control, there have been deficiencies within SRL research when applies within workplace settings. Historically, SRL has been conceptualised and researched from an individual perspective within formal settings with disconnected individuals, resulting in reducing regulating process to the individuals and providing a vague picture of the interaction between self- and co-regulatory learning processes. Recently, there has been increasing attention given to the context in which the regulatory process takes place and the social and emotional processes which are components of it. However, it is still unclear how the individual and social aspects of regulation processes interact and contribute to explain individual and group engagement in real-life learning situations. The purpose of this paper is to propose a theory-informed framework to design e-learning systems aiming at supporting learning regulatory process in work environments and then to analyze the relationship between self- and co-regulatory processes. Accordingly, by following a design-based research methodology, we developed a theory-based framework to inform the design of an e-learning system for a workplace setting. Then we explained the implementation of a prototype built upon this framework. Next, we evaluated and tested the prototype in a pilot group consists of 177 users. Finally, we used the created data logs in this prototype to scrutinize the possible relationship between self- and co-regulatory learning processes performed by these users.
