Q. What is a PLE?

PLE stands for Personal Learning Environment.

A PLE is like a personal learning centre - an online place - where you can collect and organize the things that will help you learn.
You might call it your education dashboard!
  • You control your PLE space
  • You choose and add the things that will help your style of learning
  • You can share and communicate with each other as part of your online community

A typical PLE might have:
  • your learning blog (if you have one for a class)
  • favorite or recommended websites
  • YouTube videos
  • Bookmarks
  • To-Do list
  • RSS feeds or Twitter feeds for a #topic or group
