You got VLE in my PLE

Martin Well posted an intentionally provocative article entitled The VLE/LMS is dead.

He walks through the concept of using collections of loosely coupled 3rd party applications as an alternative to the centralized learning applications.

He is careful to point out that he's not describing a PLE. The educator is still selecting the tools.

It does seem, however, that what he describes has a strong relationship with PLEs. In fact, they are simply the server side elements many of us already use in our own PLEs.
