Abstract : The academic world today welcomes a generation of students who grew up with internet. They use this tool everyday for any kind of use, finding information, sharing or communication distraction. On the one hand, social networks, they are among the most commonly used applications and they occupy about 2 hours time per day for 15-24 and about 8 hours per week for 18-35. They are thus over 7 million in this age group to use the internet daily. On the other hand, digital learning environments, more or less personalized, they are made available to students by universities. They are more or less open and customizable but they can not exclude the specific uses (hyper-connections, high sociality based on weak links,…) of the new student populations.This new landscape constantly changing regarding new generations of practices, just ask us about their impact on learning since they spend a large part of their day in the University and therefore as learners. The objective of this analysis is to enable a better understanding of students everyday use to provide recommendations for teachers to help them to adapt their teaching practices, but also to be able to suggest improvements and developments in Personal Learning Environments Learning ergonomy and functionalities i.e. improving tools, building applications enabling interaction between the different actors of the learning platform (learner-teacher support services) and interoperability of such applications with those most widely used everyday (social networks, wiki, community platform and social bookmarking, recommendation system, etc. ..); ergonomics of the platform to facilitate navigation; supports, resources and teaching screenwriting best suited to their usual practices, etc ... To achieve these goals, we will use a SWOT analysis. The originality of our approach is to combine a vision outcome from Human and Social Sciences, Science of Education and mathematical modeling technics of the online uses.
