Common definitions of a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) encompass personal systems and tools. This paper proposes a model for the development of a framework for an open source Adaptable Personal Learning Environment (APLE) that takes the PLE concept a stage further. In our definition an APLE is also adaptable to the needs and preferences of the individual learner, and to the environment in which they are working. The starting point for this study are three current or recently completed research projects; an adaptive, symbols based VLE for students with severe disabilities, self adapting interfaces for mobile devices, and a Transformation, Adaptation and Substitution Service (TASS) for the definition of adaptable learning objects. The outcomes of these projects taken together can evolve to produce an APLE.
