PLE is an approach to supporting learning.

This involves the use of different practices using social software in different contexts.

The PLE is what occurs in people's heads and our job is to provide flexible, rich and useful ingredients, devices, resources, and opportunities for interaction.

At the heart of personalisation is the understanding that learning environments comprise the totality of factors with which the learners interact, including people, spaces and resources.
