Yurii Vedrashko and Sean Dowling discuss with participants the role and construction of a PLE. Sean is Educational Technology Coordinator at HCT, in Sharja; while Yuri is a Foundations teacher and CMS (Moodle and BbVista enthusiast) at Fujairah Women’s College. They have differing views on how such spaces should be configured. Roughly speaking, Yurii favors consolidating spaces accessible through a single login on a CMS / LMS, while Sean takes the ‘many pieces loosely joined approach’ by incorporating learning objects from many spaces in learning environments he creates online.
