The learning environment of the future must be more individualised and personalised - for years this is one of the international demands in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) and teaching. Since fall 2010 Graz University of Technology provides a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) based on mashup of widgets connecting various web applications. The publication aims to give a first demonstration of the way these PLE widgets can be converted to run on all common desktop Operating Systems (OS) to increase the range for individualisation of learning activities. After a short introduction we present an overview about the possibilities of the PLE-converter, discuss the working prototype and conclude with an answer to the question of an online framework for the widgets as well as desktop variants for usual operating systems.
