  25. 42. Pragmatic approaches? <ul><li>Keep providing VLEs and other institutional e-learning solutions but open up the content and provide APIs so it can be incorporated into PLEs </li></ul><ul><li>Support user-supplied technologies in new infrastructure development (Wi-Fi, shared screens, flexible spaces instead of labs) </li></ul><ul><li>Incorporate useful functionality into the VLE from elsewhere via Web APIs </li></ul>
  26. 43. Cont’d <ul><li>Support flexible e-learning with or without the VLE at center stage, using other web services and applications where they add value </li></ul><ul><li>Move administrative functionality into a service layer (e.g., using the e-Framework) and expose via VLE or PLE </li></ul>
