  3. 3. PLE - A Longer Description The PLE represents the integration of a number of "Web 2.0"technologies like blogs, Wikis, RSS feeds, Twitter, Facebook,etc.— around the independent learner. Using the term "e-learning 2.0," Stephen Downes describes the PLE as: "... onenode in a web of content, connected to other nodes and contentcreation services used by other students…. It becomes, indeed,not a single application, but a collection of interoperatingapplications—an environment rather than a system"Downes, S. "E-learning 2.0", National Research Council of Canada, October 17, 2005
