In parallel with the development of the internet based information technologies to be used open and distance learning, a considerable improvement has also been observed in e-learning. Thanks to this development, individuals have become learners who direct, plan and share their learning environments according to their own learning needs. Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) that can be enriched with the ever-evolving Web 2.0 tools enable learners to create an archive of what they will have for life. In other words, PLEs consist of systems that learners can individually manage their own learning, and systems that feed self-regulation. In this regard, the authors of this work will shed light on how PLEs are used in elearning via giving existing examples in literature. The authors will also make remarks on foreign language learning through PLEs. To this end, examples of bookmarks that could be used within PLEs will be given.
