Abstract:
In the current landscape of technological and social change, the shape of learning technology is being influenced by forces which present significant challenges for the learning designer. The increasing demand for personalised approaches and pedagogies, together with an emphasis on the need to cater for the needs and preferences of the individual learner, are shifting the focus to the integration of adaptive and ubiquitous learning, to respond to the challenge of providing truly- learner-centred, accessible, personalised and flexible learning. This paper proposes a model for the development of a framework for an open source Adaptable Personal Learning Environment (APLE). It goes beyond current definitions of a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) that encompasses personal systems and tools. In our definition an APLE is also adaptable to the needs and preferences of the individual learner, and to the environment in which they are working. Taking an existing Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), known as the Portland VLE, as the starting point the framework is focused around the creation of individual interfaces for personal learning. Central to the development of this framework is engagement with and development of a community of practice (COP) comprising tutors, developers, researchers, students and administrators. Through the COP we aim to develop a set of anonymous personal profiles from which sample interfaces and learning objects will be produced. These sample interfaces and learning object templates will enable the definition of requirements that should meet the needs and preferences of all learners regardless of disability, environment or personal preference.
