Towards an institutional PLE

Milllard, David E., Davis, Hugh C., Howard, Yvonne, McSweeney, Patrick, Yorke, Chris and Solheim, Heidi (2011) Towards an institutional PLE At Perosnalised Learning Environment Conference 2011, United Kingdom. 11 - 13 Jul 2011. 14 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


PLEs in their broader sense (the ad-hoc, serendipitous and potentially chaotic set of tools that learners bring to their learning) are increasingly important for learners in the context of formal study. In this paper we outline the approach that we are taking at the University of Southampton in redesigning our teaching and learning infrastructure into an Institutional PLE. We do not see this term as an oxymoron. We define an Institutional PLE as an environment that provides a personalised interface to University data and services and at the same time exposes that data and services to a student’s personal tools. Our goal is to provide a digital platform that can cope with an evolving learning and teaching environment, as well as support the social and community aspects of the institution.
