In this study, a life logging system is designed, developed and tested for management of the lifelong learning experiences. In the first stage, theoretical foundations of lifelong learning experiences have been searched and then an applicable and expanded approach is acquired by putting together major informal learning theories. After that, a life logging system that captures webcam images and screenshots from individual's desktop, laptop and tablets spontaneously is developed in order to save these learning experiences. System is expanded to architecture which enables the user can interpret his/her personal experiences, develop personal knowledge base, signification and management of learning experiences. Design based research approach is used in study and results of sixteen month old development-trial period are discussed. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
