Paper : Richard Mobbs



The challenge for many HEIs is how best to help ‘develop and direct’ technological support to their students to enhance flexibility, choice and engagement, rather than to ‘dictate’ what technology they should use according the central (or even centralist) policies of institutional provision. In this context, a growing interest in so-called personalisation strategies is evident, with increasing use of the terms personal learning and personalised learning environments (PLEs). A key strategic issue for HEIs is whether and how such trends can be reconciled with the significant investments already made in VLEs, in terms of infrastructural and human capital involved as well as content.
