Top 100 Tools For Learning 2010 – C4LPT Survey

Upside Learning

Skype – instant messaging and VoIP call tool. The final list of top 100 tools for learning for 2010 is now out on Jane Hart’s website. I understand this list is more inclined towards tools that learning professionals use for their own learning as opposed to those used for creating learning programs or training sessions. I see great gains made by some of the tools while I have not even experienced them as yet. A quick look at the top 10: Twitter – micro-updating tool.

Face time

E-Learning Provocateur

We have asynchronous tools such as online discussion forums, synchronous tools such as instant messaging, and semi-synchronous tools such as Twitter. To add voice to the conversation we can use teleconferencing or VoIP. My wife and I are studying Foundations of Business Strategy together. And by “studying”, I mean we are watching the videos – which are excellent, by the way.

Analysis of ProtoSphere/Lync Integration

Kapp Notes

The Lync server is a software product that unifies enterprise voice, instant messaging and web-, audio- and videoconferencing into a, connected communications experience. Additionally, the integration means that the VoIP is always on. Always on-VoIP people interacting in the space can speak and hear others the moment they enter a zone for hands-free talking. Event.

and an audio dimension (VOIP or acccompanying teleconference). Teleconferencing or instant messaging with VOIP. Text chat using a chat room or instant messaging. Text chat would not be many learners' medium of choice for synchronous communication with their group during a course. The order of preference probably goes: Face-to-face communication. Web conferencing that includes a visual dimension (webcams / graphics, etc.)


Collaboration Tools

Tony Karrer

As I mentioned in Real-Time Collaborative Editing , I had a fantastic experience participating in group editing of a Mind Map of collaborative tools during a session at Learn Trends. You can see the result below. But it was interesting to see the results exported which I've embedded below. I would expect the document to continue to grow and change, but thought it would be worth having it available in a text format as well (so I can find it when I need it).

Why we need both live and self-paced communication

Clive on Learning

Asynchronously, we had the post, telex and telegrams; the ability to leave recorded phone messages on tape; books, magazines, newspapers and other printed media; as well as a variety of new recorded media, including vinyl records, tapes and CDs. Asynchronously there’s been similar progress, with email, forums and newsgroups; the World Wide Web; social networking using blogs, wikis and podcasts; as well as the ability to send simple text messages to each other using our mobile phones.
