Pageflakes

If you are interested in independent language learning take a look at this site, developed by myself and colleagues at the LSE Language centre: http://www.pageflakes.com/languages/

Pageflakes is a personal web portal similar to iGoogle and Netvibes. You can use these platforms to gather together your favourite web sites in the form of links and rss feeds. We’ve used Pageflakes to recommend language learning sites to our students.

However, Pageflakes has proved to be rather unstable recently. It worked very well for most of last year and then it started being temporarily unavailable for days on end. So we are currently developing another site on Moodle called “Independent Learning Resources”. Does anyone use Pageflakes, iGoogle or or any other personal web portal?
