Scott: Thanks for your insights and the link. I had not considered PLE's as an IT strategy until now. You propose a very attractive way to meet in the middle. Where I've come at the PLE issue from the issues of autonomous learning (turbulent variety), in your paper, you're seeing the benefits for the centralized provider to offload its cost-intensive responsiveness to that variety (and it's attempt to compete with the online richness). Supporting the self organizing processes of individual learners and learning cohorts seems like an approach that could delay the creative destruction of content delivery institutions for awhile longer. You see the win/win between VLE's and PLE's clearly.

Hi Tom,

My contribution to the symposium on decentralized systems at Ed-Media this year might be worth looking at as an example of the kind of thing you're talking about; its concerned with the organisational challenges and benefits of PLEs, taking an IT services view.

PLE approaches offer institutions an escape route from escalating cost, legal liabilities, and management overheads, while offering IT service departments an opportunity to take a consultancy role that will offer staff a chance to use their skills at a higher level.

Win-win is an entirely plausible proposition, and I agree entirely with the points presented here.
