Abstract: For many years the promise of technology-enabled education has been the potential to adapt the learning experience to each individual learner. If an IT-enabled learning environment is aware of each learner’s learning preferences, the learning environment can potentially supply each learner with an individually optimized learning experience. The aggregation capabilities of cloud services, intelligent systems that transform, augment and replace resources with more suitable equivalents, combined with federated repositories of sharable, appropriately designed and labelled resources make this possible. However to achieve this we need a new take on how we view, produce and deliver educational learning resources.

Key words: personalised learning, OER, cloud learning services
