Circuit Simulator

LushProjects Circuit Simulator

This electronic circuit simulator is highly interactive giving the feeling of playing with real components. It’s very helpful for experimentation and visualization. Best of all, thanks to the power of HTML5, no plug-ins are required! The original implementation, in Java, belongs toPaul Falstad who kindly gave his permission for me to build this port.


About | Winners & Losers 2012 | Top 100 Tools 2007-2012

Here are the Top 100 Tools for Learning 2012 –  the results of the 6th Annual Learning Tools Survey – as voted for by 582 learning professionals worldwide, and compiled by the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies. (Released 1 October 2012)

“A learning tool is a tool to create or deliver learning content/solutions for others, or a tool for your own personal or professional learning.”


Below is a summary of the Top 100 Tools 2012 and where the Top 100 Tools are mainly being used – ie for Personal/Professional learning/productivity, in Education and/or in the Enterprise (for training, performance support and/or team collaboration). (Please note that the absence of a checkmark in a column does not mean that the tool is not, cannot or should not be used for that purpose!)
