Towards an Institutional PLE
Millard, David E. and Davis, Hugh C. and Howard, Yvonne and McSweeney, Patrick and Solheim, Heidi and Morris, Debra and Yorke, Chris (2011) Towards an Institutional PLE. pp. 1-14. In: Proceedings of the The PLE Conference 2011, 10th - 12th July 2011, Southampton, UK.
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.
