International trends in education show a shift to student-centered approaches. This paper presents the Learner centered Learning (LcL) environment which is activity oriented, serves learning and assessment, provides multiple types of informative and tutoring feedback components at activity and question level and deploys open learner model to promote self-regulation. The use of the environment in higher education reveals positive results in learning and a promising blending of activities, feedback and open learner model.
