Voting is now open and will close on Friday 30 September 2016.
The results will be released on Monday 3 October 2016.
2016 marks the 10th anniversary of the Top 100 Tools for Learning list compiled by Jane Hart from the votes of learning professionals around the world – from both education and workplace training.
Due to the fact that the same tools have dominated the list in recent years, for 2016 the list will be extended to contain 200 tools so that more tools can be mentioned. Additionally, in order to understand how these tools are being used, three sub-lists will be generated:
- Top Tools for Education 2016
- Top Tools for Training & Performance Support 2016
- Top Tools for Personal Learning & Productivity 2016
How to vote – There are a number of ways to vote for your favourite tools:
- Use the online form below. (Please note each entry is manually validated.
- Email your 10 tools to firstname.lastname@example.org providing the details as shown on the online form below
- Write a blog post about your choice and send the link to Jane Hart.
A valid entry needs to include ten different tools. Please name ten specific tools rather than generic technologies (e.g. “Blogger” or “WordPress”, rather than “blogs” or “blogging”). In particular, please note the following
- A vote for Google will be a vote for Google Search, so if you want to vote for other Google tools, you will need to name them individually, e.g. Google Docs/Drive, Google Scholar, Google Maps, etc.
- A vote for Google Apps will be for the badged collection of Google Apps for Business or Education, not a generic term for all Google applications.
- A vote for Microsoft Office will be split over Word and PowerPoint, so please vote individually for these Office tools, i.e. Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Outlook etc.
Finally, votes are accepted only at the discretion of the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies.
