As technology has become an agent of immense change, it has forced upon the education system Cloud Computing which in the future will have significant ripple effect. In this new educational environment personalized learning should take a central place. To reach this we first need to analyse what personalized learning exactly is. Although there are many definitions and interpretations there is a consensus that personalized learning starts with the learner with the learner in the centre, actively designing the learning goals, deciding how to access and acquire information, and owning the learning. To make this possible the existing virtual learning environment (VLEs) must be transformed into real personal learning environments, using an adapted pedagogy and making i-learning possible.
