spacer.gif   Elgg's latest release...

Open Source World The latest version of Elgg has been launched. Elgg users can have a 'personal learning landscape', with embedded e-portfolios, weblogging, and social networking..





Elgg is the creation of Ben Werdmuller and David Tosh. Elgg is a 'hybrid' of weblogging, e-portfolios and social networking. This provides an environment for learners to create their own learning space. It also allows users to connect to other users, thereby forming online communities of learning.

Elgg allows students to interact with: peers, tutors, lecturers, resources etc. Thereby providing many opportunities to share knowledge, ideas and projects.

It is easy to obtain an account. You can register for an individual account hosted by Elgg or you can take the system and install it on your own server. Elgg is, of course, an Open Source application.

More information from the developers:

"Elgg has been developed to serve as a stand alone personal learning landscape or as a complimentary addition to existing learning environments. The emphasis with Elgg is very much on the learner. Elgg looks to give learners the means to control and own their own development and growth through the use of everyday web technologies."


"As the system has grown and developed (thanks to huge user input) Elgg has morphed into what we have coined a personal learning landscape. This learning landscape provides learners with the ability to control their own learning through the creation of their own online learning communities (both formal and ad-hoc), connection to other learners and resources, reflective potential, information gathering and sharing."
