Hart releases top 100 tools for learning #netlit

Top 100Each year, I wait with excitement for Jane Hart’s Top 100 Tools for Learning. She just released it and I am pleased to see that I am using the top 10 tools on a regular basis. 

  • Twitter
  • Google Drive/Docs
  • YouTube
  • Google Search
  • PowerPoint
  • Evernote
  • Dropbox
  • WordPress
  • Facebook
  • Google+ & Hangouts

As I continue to review the list, I am actively using all the tools listed from 11 to 20 except for Prezi and Blogger. I personally think Prezi has too many distractions, and I use WordPress for my blogging. Google Reader used to be on the list but it has been replaced by Feedly for managing RSS feeds.

From 21 to 30, I again regularly use these tools except for Articulate, Edmodo, and Adobe Connect. I will have to explore Edmodo, I am not too familiar with it. However, instead of Articulate, I am using Captivate, and I regularly use other web conferencing tools such as Google+ Hangouts on Air, Microsoft Lync, and Blackboard Collaborate instead of Adobe Connect.

For the rest of the list, I will have to go out and actively explore the following:

  • Coursera
  • Screenr
  • iSpring
  • Pocket
  • Udutu
  • Padlet
  • Storify
  • Etherpad
  • GlogsterEDU
  • eFront
  • Popplet
  • Animoto
  • Todays Meet
  • Whats App
  • Trello
  • elearningArt
  • Learnist

It will be interesting to see which tools will gain in popularity over the next year. From the top 100 list, I am familiar with or actively using at least 70% of these tools.

How do you measure up to this list?
