Nowadays, learning is continuing and seeks to selecting suitable tools to support better learning. Learners are discovering new uses of the technologies for their learning by building their own personal learning environment and network (PLE&N). Many of these tools are Web 2.0 tools, including discussion forums, file/video sharing, RSS feeds and social networks. However, the existing tools are loosely connected. It is time consuming to manage them. This paper discusses the use of PLE&N with a web services interoperability tool, IFTTT (aka If This Then That), which bridges the web services. The benefits of how a PLE&N with IFTTT is discussed to support personal knowledge management for better learning. Individual knowledge workers are continuing being empowered by such Web 2.0 tools in the cloud to pursue personal goals and aspirations.
