The majority of VLEs currently in use are server-based, and designed to be used as institutional systems. However this creates a problem for students as they move between institutions, since they may need to learn how to use different environments based at different institutions. Development in interoperability standards now make it possible to conceive of personal environments that interact with institutional systems, presenting courses and related information in a way customised to suit the individual, and allowing them to assemble a set of tools and resources that suit the way they wish to learn, connecting to an underlying service based infrastructure such as that proposed by the eLearning Framework.
