Trends in eLearning

This summer the folks at Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies asked prominent learning professionals and visitors to their website, “What are your 10 favorite tools for your personal learning/working, or for creating learning for others?" Their answers are reported in eLearn magazine, here.

Many of these tools will likely be familiar to you. The list includes Firefox, del.icio.us, Skype, Google search, and other much used and discussed Web 2.0 tools. As the author points out, what’s more interesting, perhaps, is that when asked about elearning, people don’t immediately start talking about online classes. Instead, there’s much more focus on the tools used in daily life for self-managed learning, information sharing and collaboration.

Oh, and thanks to Darrin for pointing out this article. Learning from your colleagues is always popular around here...
