Evaluation on Students' and Teachers' Acceptance of Widget- and Cloud-based Personal Learning Environments

Instead of using traditional learning environments which contain tools and content of a single provider that are often owned by one specific educational organization, the presented idea of widget- and cloud-based Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) exploits a variety of existing and developing open educational sources including popular Web2.0 resources such as YouTube, Flickr or Wikipedia. The main contribution of this paper is the analysis of teachers' and students' attitudes and reasons for acceptance of widget- and cloud-computing based PLE technology.
