Abstract: The way adults pursue their education through life is changing as the technology around us relentlessly continues to enhance our quality of life and further enhances every aspect of the different tasks we set out to perform. This exploratory paper looks into how every adult can embody a comprehensive set of academic services, platforms and systems to assist every individual in the educational goals that one sets. A combination of three distinct technologies are presented together with how they not only come together but complement each other around a person in what is usually referred to as a personal area network. The network in this case incorporates an intelligent personal learning environment providing personalised content, intelligent wearables closer to the user to provide additional contextual customisation, and a surrounding ambient intelligent environment to close a trio of technologies around every individual. Each of the three research domains will be presented to uncover how each contributes to the personal network that embodies what one usually expects from an educational institution. Three distinct prototype systems have been developed, tested and deployed within a functional system that will be presented in this paper.
