In this study, applicability of a digital lifelog system developed for managing lifelong learning experiences has been investigated. System is designed and developed by the first author of this study and evaluated independently by the other three authors by using action research method. Because of the fact that, life logging applications produce log entries, which belong to every awake hour of the individual's daily life, they may contain private visual information, so direct observation of the application by the others may cause ethical problems. Three practitioner-researchers have implemented the system independently without being affected from one another for overcoming this limitation and they have supervised the implementation by themselves and have collected data relevant to the implementation through systematic self-observation during this period. Data gathered has thereafter been evaluated by being analyzed with a common analysis by all authors. It has been seen that the system of digital life logging used has caused the practitioners to acquire skills of planning, evaluation and controlling of lifelong learning experiences and it is a sufficient tools for implementing such skills.
