To design a personalized learning environment a teacher has to conduct a thorough instructional design, models the ICT culture and behaviour and provides scaffolding that eventually frees the learners to be creative and to take responsibility for their learning. This paper will present a Personalized Learning Environment and Students Engagement (PLEaSE) project that examines ways of embedding technology and empowering learners to become co-designers of their learning. One of the ways is to engage the lecturers in the design of the learning environment. This paper shares an initiative that models PLEaSE through a blended learning approach designed to help university lecturers to engage students online. The objectives are for lecturers to: 1) Apply some principles of instructional design that engage learners in blended learning environments; 2) Identify strategies that encourage active student participation online using the phases of engagement model, and 3) Examine issues related to sustainability of online community learning.
