I have the pleasure to be member of the program committee of the Workshop on Mash-Up Personal Learning Environments (MUPPLE’08) at the 3rd European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL’08), Maastricht, The Netherlands, September 17-19, 2008.
A change in perspective can be certified in the recent years to technology-enhanced learning research and development: More and more learning applications on the web are putting the learner centre stage, not the organisation. They empower learners with capabilities to customize and even construct their own personal learning environments (PLEs). These PLEs typically consist of distributed web-applications and services that support system-spanning collaborative and individual learning activities in formal as well as informal settings. This workshop serves as a forum to bring together researchers and developers from these projects and an open public that have an interest in understanding and engineering mash-up personal learning environments (MUPPLEs).More information about the workshop can be found here.
