Abstract: In recent years, several researchers have been developing
methodologies, technologies and systems to support the assembly
of learning services, tools and resources in personal learning
environments (PLEs). The overall goal is to enrich or even replace
traditional learning management systems like Moodle and
Blackboard with mash-ups of widgets and services that can be
combined and configured in a flexible way, according to the
specific needs of the user. In this paper, we describe our approach
to visualize user interactions with widgets and services within
such personal learning environments. These visualizations enable
the exploration of learner behavior within PLEs. The major
objective is to improve and evolve PLE related research and
development according to feedback mechanisms based on
empirical observation. In this paper, we present an overview of
our method to capture usage behavior and a first prototype of a
visualization dashboard that enables the analysis and
interpretation of these data as a basis for evaluation.
