This paper proposes a model for the development of a framework for an open source Adaptable Personal Learning Environment (APLE). We define an APLE as one that is adaptable to the learner’s needs and preferences, to the environment in which they are working and encompasses personal systems and tools. The framework is focused around the creation of novel interfaces for personal learning taking as the starting point an existing Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) known as the Portland VLE. Central to the project is engagement with and development of a community of practice comprising tutors, developers, students and administrators. Through this engagement we aim to develop a set of anonymous personal profiles from which sample interfaces and learning objects will be produced. In addition an exploration of appropriate standards is required to establish a framework that enables interoperability between learning environment, devices and learning objects.
