Voting for the Top 100 Tools for Learning 2015, the 9th Annual Survey, is open.
Voting closes at noon GMT on Friday 18 September 2015
and the Top 100 Tools list will be revealed on Monday 21 September 2015.
What is a learning tool?
A learning tool is any software or online tool or service that you use either for your own personal or professional learning or for teaching or training.
- 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”).
- 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 tools, i.e. Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Outlook etc.
- You will also need to validate your role as a learning professional – by providing a link to a valid online profile on LinkedIn, your blog or an organisational website.
- Finally, contributions are accepted only at the discretion of the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies.
