    • The environment every teacher and student uses everyday, at least within an institution.

  • 9. Architecture of the PLE
    • Kernel
  • 10. Our prototype
    • Widgets
      • gadgets as the glue for the integration of services
    • Start page
      • iGoogle as the frame for the widgets
      • iGoogle within Google Apps
        • l ocally controlled environment (set of tools, group of users)
        • administrator can configure a default PLE for everybody
  • 11. Our prototype
    • Cloud-computing
      • Google App Engine to extract and analyze the collective intelligence that emerges from the network of PLEs
    • Network of blogs
      • Elgg or Wordpress as a framework for creating the blogs that backup the data exchanged within a group of users who use the PLE
    • Authoring tool: eXe learning
  • 12. Our prototype
    • Repositories for:
      • D ocuments  Google Docs + Sites (wiki)
      • Images  Flickr
      • Videos  Youtube
      • Bookmarks  Delicious
      • RLOs  own server
      • Posts  network of institutional blogs
    • Vertical search engines  Google CSEs
  • 13. Our prototype
    • We use software from Google because
      • it masks many technical issues
      • i t offers a flexible infrastructure
    • Google Apps is a propietary platform, but other products can also be used
      • o pen nature of gadgets allow their placement in any container
  • 14. Open issues
    • Widgets that connect institutional services
    • Development of collaborative widgets
    • Real integration (data flow) of services inside iGoogle, not just an interface integration
    • Manage different user groups within Google Apps (teachers, students, research groups…)
    • Get experience with the standards we need (SAML, OpenID, Oauth, OpenSocial, …)
    • Integration of eXe learning and iGoogle
