Top ten tools for learning

Writing about web page http://www.c4lpt.co.uk/recommended/top100.html

Now this is interesting: a survey from September 2007 asking 100 or so people working in e-learning to nominate their favourite (IT) tools for learning. What kinds of programs or applications do you think would make the cut? Here’s the top ten:-

  • 1 Firefox
  • 2 del.icio.us
  • 3= Skype / Google Search
  • 5 PowerPoint
  • 6 WordPress
  • 7= Gmail / Google Reader
  • 9 Blogger
  • 10 Word

Further down the list, we see more specialised tools such as Audacity and Captivate, and other collaboration tools such as Google Docs and Wikispaces. Almost all the social software sites such as Facebook, Flickr, Youtube, etc. appear, and almost all flavours of productivity software are represented somewhere in the list. Interestingly, Blackboard, which is e-learning and nothing but, didn’t even make the top hundred. Hell, Subversion got more votes than Blackboard! Tools to make stuff and to share stuff are clearly today’s e-learning apps of choice.
