10 Social Media Tools For Learning

I found an interesting blogpost at the eLearning coach weblog about ten social media tools for learning. Each tool –mentioned below– fulfills one of the following criteria (alphabetical listing)

  • encourages collaboration;
  • enables user-generated content or input;
  • provides a way to share;
  • and facilitates informal or formal learning.

10 Social Media Tools for Learning

  1. Audacity (free downloadable software for creating podcasts)
  2. Dimdim (interactive webinars and live presetnations)
  3. Edublogs Campus (blog service)
  4. Elgg (social networking engine and publishing platform)
