Searching the site SourceForge.net looking about PLE projects, it gave me 4 results. Only 2 have to be with Ple platforms. This were The PLE (Personal Learning Environment) and the courseweb but any of them have activity on the project.

a system that helps learners take control of and manage their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to set their own learning goals, manage their learning, manage both content and process, and communicate with others in the process of learning.
In contrast, a virtual learning environment (VLE) or learning management system (LMS), such as Blackboard or Moodle, is:
a software system designed to help teachers by facilitating the management of educational courses for their students, especially by helping teachers and learners with course administration. The system can often track the learners' progress, which can be monitored by both teachers and learners.
Notice the difference? A VLE/LMS is all about controlling how you learn. A PLE is about giving you control over how you learn.
