In the early years of the web, the main approach to business on the web was to aggregate all services in one portal. This view started to a winner takes all, zero sum game which led to the dot com financial bubble that burst in 2001. The developments on e-learning also mimicked the portal approach in the development of Virtual Campus software and later on Learning Management Systems and Virtual Learning Environments – and lots of fun discussing on the differences on one thing and the other -. But since 2001 there has been two main revolutions in the Web: First what was called the Web 2.0 acknowledges the user participation, user generated content and social interaction as a strategic and transformative source of value. And later on with the widespread of smartphones we discover new kind of software, completely opposed to the old doomed to fail portal: the App. A small piece of software that only does one thing but does really well. Either native mobile OS App or Web based responsive design Apps, in less than 7 years have become ubiquitous, widespread, pervasive and part of our daily lives. These small apps, rely in interoperability technologies to boost its value by integrating with other Apps and online services, or by making itselves integrable. This clear change in how the web, and the mobile web is conceived and built changes the user’s behaviour and expectations. And students and teachers expect a different approach that the one found in the swiss knife like VLE or LMS of choice. This expectation crystallizes in the concept of Personal Learning Environments (PLE) and (PLN’s).

In this track we want to hear about the design of Apps for Learning and of how we can Learn with Apps.
