I wrote to Elliott about my ideas. Here it is (+links and a bit of editing)
For me this question is closely related to the issue of tacit on-line learning you raised recently: ideally I would think about a smart tool that keeps track of my learning experiences (on- and off-line) regardless how formal they are. I would like to have something that has links to the courses I subscribed, workshops, community discussions, links to the documents, notes from readings and courses I took... Ideally it should be linked to scheduling and communication tools, as well as to the competency assessment tools.

I'm trying to work out some ideas in my work, researching connections between formal and informal (tacit) learning, as well as their organisational support, which comes from T&D, e-learning and knowledge management domain. I think that looking for hybrid between e-learning and knowledge management tools can be a starting step for my "personalised learning tool". Next to it I'm looking for using blogs as personal knowlegde-learning diaries - there is an ongoing discussion about it in the knowledge management community...
