eLearning & Deliberative Moments: The present and future of Personal Learning Environments (PLE)

Buzz Marketing for Technology

PLEs are meant to simplify managing these artefacts, creating meaning through aggregation, linking and metadata tagging (eg comments, keywords). On the other hand, in Europe more sites use inhouse and open source implementations (Vuorikari, 2003). These allow custom extensions, which may pave the way for the development of open APIs for connection by PLEs. But a PLE could host a searchable index to metadata about offline resources.
