Abstract

This invention describes an apparatus for bridging the immediate work context with a role-based, business-aware dictionary in order to enable true work-embedded learning. This invention is composed of four elements: A client dictionary application, a server dictionary application, a lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) authentication server, and an acronym, term and phrase dictionary. Matches are identified by business unit, role, and date of input into the database, so that users can evaluate the definitions for appropriateness and associate them with work context.
