Abstract
The term personal learning environment (PLE) is very broad and entails high demands. Compared to known learning management environments (LMEs) PLEs seem as of yet not to have been implemented. Especially from the pedagogical point of view, PLEs hardly seem to make up for the individual learning promise. One solution to close the gap is to concentrate on elementary aspects of PLEs. Recommendations seem to help a lost user in need to find appropriate learning materials as well as tools. But simple recommendations cannot make up for the decisions in a complex learning process. Identifying coherent streams of micro-activities on a log-file level that match concepts of psychological models on a more abstracted level is a fruitful as well as difficult task. Two ways to find such a path are sketched in this paper.
