Top tools for learning

Jane Hart is a social business consultant who founded the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies. One of her recent projects was to gather from 545 learning professionals around the world their shared Top 10 Tools for Learning. From that list, Jane generated the Top 100 Tools for Learning 2010. I went through this list, grouped these tools by topic, and matched those that were applicable to their corresponding courses in the Online Training Library®:
