The Open University (OU) has produced an interactive eBook about ROLE. This eBook provides an introduction to Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) and Self Regulated Learning (SRL). A selection of widgets that have been developed by the ROLE project are also demonstrated. Readers have an opportunity to try these widgets through a set of interactive learning activities included in the eBook. The content of the eBook has been adapted from the ROLE online courses available in OpenLearn (http://labspace.open.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=7898 and http://labspace.open.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=7433).
The eBook is available for iOS devices (iPads and iPhones) and can be downloaded from http://projects.kmi.open.ac.uk/role/ibook/ROLE.ibooks. It will also be available soon on the Apple iBook store, published by the OU.
