New Home for PLE Diagrams

I am in the midst of writing a rather long post reflecting on what the collection of PLE diagrams I started back in 2008 can tell us about both PLEs and how people conceptualize them.

But as I started it, I realized that looking at the diagrams on the wiki page was a bit frustrating, as there was no simple way to tag them and categorize them. So this weekend I experimented with moving the collection into an actual image gallery database. You can see it at

I would love some feedback from you all – is this a better solution than the original wikispaces page? Worse? I tried to preserve the ability for people to upload their own diagrams to the server, and this new solution also adds the ability to tag the images and leave comments on them. Please do tell me what you think in the comments below.

I will leave both up for a while and if I decide to move this permanently to this new gallery site will redirect traffic from the old wikispace here.

    Scott, this is just G.R.E.A.T.

    Not only the organization is much neater, but the possibility to browse the tags is, I think, very useful. The “download album” option is cool too (BTW, I did not know Gallery — I’ll give it a try :)

    Thanks for putting this together (again)

    Love the new gallery! More visual impact, easier to browse, and the tags enable comparing different aspects of the diagrams. Great timing, too, as I was planning to send my students to the old sitenext week to look for exemplars before constructing their own diagrams–this gallery is much more accessible.

    Thanks for maintaining this project!
