Explaining the PLE

March 27, 2010

A nice video created to support a paper being presented at the Plymouth e-Learning Conference on the 8th/9th April.

From here and here.

Despite the “official” title of VLE vs PLE, the reality is that PLEs have always existed and are nothing new. It is not a choice between a VLE or a PLE, students will have a PLE, the issue is whether the institutional VLE adds anything to that and whether institutional policies restrict learners in how they use their PLE.
