This paper offers a perspective on what it means for individuals to learn in the information age and examines challenges concerning learner control and self-direction. Supporting learners and learning are also discussed and considers how the PLE (personal learning environment) idea, as a methodology, can deliver holistic support within and beyond institutional learning engagements.
