evolution in Information Communication Technologies, the changes in the
labour market requirements together with the needs and expectation of
students who arrive in higher education institutions, are forcing
education to adapt. Students do not learn all at the same pace nor have
all the same learning style or habits. An ideal learning environment
would consider these differences as well as students' background, needs
and characteristics. It should take into consideration the latest
developments in learning theories, communication, social networks and
learning objects available in learning management systems. It should
also bridge the gap between education and the labour market by
connecting all the actors whether they are students, teachers, experts
or potential employers. In this learning environment education is closer
to the job market allowing all actors to play in this scenario. In this
paper, we propose a model where all the learning and e-learning
elements are present and where the student is the focus and the one who
decides what should be included in this learning environment in order to
create a Customized xLearning Environment.
