165 learning professionals have now shared their Top 10 Tools and here is a snapshot of the current Top 10 as at 8 August 2009. As you will see Twitter is still way ahead of the pack ...
It's interesting to see how Delicious has maintained its position in the Top 10, and that Firefox (#1 in 1997 and #2 in 1998) is no longer in the Top 10. Slideshare has now moved up the rankings into the Top 5, and YouTube is now in the Top 10 in a strong 6th position alongside Wordpress which has held into its placing over the last few years.
But in this month's update I wanted to focus more on some of the new entrants on the list this year.
The highest new entry is the online presentation software tool, Prezi, coming in at 18th place. This tool is steaming up the chart very quickly. But other new entrants that currently hold places in the top 50 are:
- Evernote - the note taking tool - at 28
- Tweetdeck - the desktop Twitter client - at 41
- animoto - for creating videos from your images - and Dimdim - the free web conferencing tool - at joint 42
