Moodle in the Top 10 Learning Tools for 2011

From my friends over there, I was sent this from “some random thoughts” blog:

Every year there is a crowd sourced list of the Top 100 Tools for learning curated by Jane Hart of the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies (C4LPT), and this week the 2011 list was finalised. 531 learning professionals worldwide submitted their top 10 tools and hence the top 100 list was created.

Moodle finished at number 8 with its best showing for the last 5 years where it was 10th, 14th, 9th, 12th and now 8th. Two other Course Management Systems appear further down in the top 100, at 58th and 89th respectively.

So what tops the list?

The top 10 tools in 2011 are:

  1. Twitter
  2. YouTube
  3. GoogleDocs
  4. Skype
  5. WordPress
  6. Dropbox
  7. Prezi
  8. Moodle
  9. Slideshare
  10. EDU Glogster

Take a look at the article and see how many of these tools integrate with Moodle.  Then determine how many of these you use.
