Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

This post describes a proof of concept for a personal learning system called a student profile. The student profile gives students control over their personal information, including learning activities, and demonstrates how other parties can trust learning records kept in the student profile and shared by the student. This is a critical factor in creating personal learning environments that support life-long learning and give the university greater flexibility in system architecture.
