Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) and Cloud Learning Environments (CLEs) have recently encountered a rapid growth, as a response to the rising demand of learners for multi-sourced content and environments targeting their needs and preferences. This paper introduces a semantic knowledge base that utilises a multi-layered architecture consisting of learning ontologies customized for certain aspects of PLEs and CLEs. A number of stakeholder clusters, including learners, educators, and domain experts, are identified and are assigned distinct roles for the collaborative management of this knowledge base.
