  Where would I start learning?

One more issue from TechLearn TRENDS

Where Do I Go To Start Learning?  Where does a learner start an e-Learning experience?  Do they go to a website called My Learning and start or resume a learning module?  Do they go to a specific URL for that course, which may have arrived in an email, clicking and launching?  Is there an icon on the desktop that displays a learner's current courses? Should learning be launched right from a worker's calendar program?  We would love your experience and ideas on this topic.  Can you send me an email to emasie@masie.com and we will roll this up into an article in a few weeks.

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 dreaming about my personal competency/knowledge/contacts/learning management tool. Hope to get it one day :)

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...
