Enormous investments have been made by universities, governments, and private industry in developing online courses in every field imaginable. But the dream of their widespread use to support personalized learning has been hampered by millions of individual digital assets being locked in the indivisible unit of the course.  True personalized learning requires that these assets be searchable and dynamically remixed to meet the assessed need of the individual learner.  The next generation of Open edX, with the new Blockstore architecture contributed by LabXchange, will be the largest open source platform with the potential to dynamically deliver different learning assets as part of personalized learning.  In addition, integration of this open architecture for personalized learning with social networking designed to promote the sharing of learning experiences will enable their collective application to global challenges.  This reimagines online learning as simultaneously more personal at the individual level and more collectively engaged at the societal level.
