This paper addresses the need for new learning environments for next generation learners. Homo Zappiens has developed information-processing skills integrating visuals and sounds, movements and text. This paper describes the development of an application called ZapLab, an interactive environment for classifying and retrieving learning assets and objects according to individual learning needs. It supports learners and facilitate non-linear learning behaviour by visually presenting learning resources according to resource characteristics, their interrelationship, and search criteria chosen by the learner. ZapLab is a working prototype which has been developed for uses in higher education. Resources of an existing blended and flexible elective were used to experiment the design for the environment which have been tested for user experience.
