The rise of e-Learning as a primary platform for higher education promises to open up higher education to a wider range of learners than ever before. In order to best cater to this ever more diverse group of students, a personal learning system, which reflects the individual student’s learning style and needs, would be valuable. Such a system would successfully integrate a user’s learner profile, as well as his or her social networks, and big data sources, as well as time and location information in order to support ubiquitous learning. In this paper, we give an overview of the initial prototyping of a personal learning environment based on the PLAN formalism.
