PERvasive Learning Systems (PERLS) is a personal learning system mobile application currently being developed to support the Personal Assistant for Learning vision. It has an engaging user interface, enables learners to have increased control over what, when, and how they learn, and takes into account that finding relevant content can be time-consuming and challenging.

PERLS is capable of monitoring a user’s GPS, interests, expertise, schedule, media preferences, and daily routines. It uses this information to suggest learning content and persuades the learner to read that content based on their personal preferences and goals, time and location constraints, and level of expertise in the form of Smart Lists and Smart Alerts.
