This study argues the potential of Personal Learning Environments towards a participatory, a collaborative and in large extent a mobile learning era and presents a case study of deploying HOU2LEARN, a Personal Learning Environment within the Hellenic Open University. As part of the deployment, it is presented the process of choosing the appropriate software along with its installation and configuration. Furthermore, in order to ensure quality in user experience, HOU2LEARN goes through a usability evaluation. This evaluation identifies potential areas of improvement to attract more users and enhance their experience. Also in order to serve as a tool for university professors and high school teachers, an assessment method based on rubrics is deployed and available in the platform.
