Top 100 Tools For Learning


I came across this recently on the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies. As a trainer who is always looking for new tools support learning content there is some real 'gold dust' in here.

Between January and March 2008 the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies (C4LPT) invited learning professionals to share their Top 10 Tools for Learning – both for their own personal learning/productivity as well as for creating learning for others.
155 learning professionals contributed their Top 10 Tools. You can find the links to their individual Top 10 favourite Tools lists at

In total over 460 different tools were named, but from these Top 10 Tools lists we compiled a list of the Top 100 Tools for Learning Spring 2008. 109 Tools were mentioned 3 or more times, and an additional 34 tools were mentioned twice. The list appears on pages 3-10 of this document and also online at www.c4lpt.co.uk/recommended/top100.html

An Analysis of the Top 100 Tools for Learning 2008 list appears online at

The tool links in these two lists take you to pages at the Centre’s website where you can find further information about each tool:
· cost and availability information
· a summary of the tool
· the aggregated comments of the contributors who named this tool as one of their favourites.

We then categorised the Top 100 Tools list by type of tool – to create A Core Toolset for
Learning 2008. This appears on pages 11-13 of this document and online at

Hope you all find this useful!!!
