Open, lifelong and ubiquitous learning, cloud computing and smart city frameworks are the pillars of the change that is replacing the traditional education and work models and transforming the way crowds of people learn, communicate, collaborate, teamwork, produce value and growth for the entities of which they are part. This work presents the updated version of SSW4LL (Social Semantic Web for Lifelong Learners), an adaptive, modular, flexible and integrated learning format which has been devised to support the characterisation of adult lifelong learners' PLEs by implicit and explicit tools of personalisation, in a learner-centred framework. The SSW4LL system, the technological architecture, is presented as a whole made up of components of formal and informal learning environments: Moodle 2.9 integrated with an adaptive mechanism (conditional activities) and some tools of Social Semantic Web (Semantic MediaWiki 2.3, Diigo and Google+), respectively. The SSW4LL format was successfully validated during the course SSW4LL 2011.
