Nowadays, people are in need for continuous learning in order to keep up to date or be upgraded in their job. An infrastructure for lifelong learning requires continuous adaptation to learners needs and must also provide ﬂexible ways for students to use and personalize them. Controlling who can access a document, specifying when a student may be contacted for interactive instant messaging or periodical reminders in order to increase motivation for collaboration are just some examples of typical statements that may be speciﬁed by e.g., learners and learning management system administrators. This paper shows how policies can represent a way of expressing these statements and describes the extra beneﬁts of its adoption like ﬂexibility, dynamicity and interoperability.
