Abstract

This paper focuses on the description of an educational experience in a postgraduate online course from three Spanish universities. Nowadays, there is a growing demand on virtual learning environments centered on the learner instead of the teacher, as it can be seen in Learning Management Systems. The design of this course, which is based on Google Apps, aims to test one of the possible solutions to this demand. Furthermore, this study pretends to expand research on Personal Learning Environments from the point of view of educational institutions, especially of universities. The results are expected to shed light on the possibilities of using institutional Personal Learning Environments in education, and also on methodologies and pedagogical principles and designs that could be applied into them.
