Top 10 Tools for Learning (2019 Edition)

Each year, Jane Hart and the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies (C4LPT) compile a list of the top 200 (technology-based) tools for learning. This list is compiled by submissions that come in from learning professionals from around the world.

If you’d like to submit your votes for the top learning tools of 2019, you can do so by filling out this form.

Here is the list of the top 10 technology-based tools (listed in no particular order) that I’ve been using for learning and development throughout this year:  Continue reading

Looking for new training tools for your next project?

Each year Jane Hart’s Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies (C4LPT) publishes a list of the Top 200 Tools for Learning.

And each year, things like Google Search, PowerPoint and YouTube appear at the top of the list. Those aren’t surprising, but I love scrolling down the list in order to see what new training tools other people are using. I’ll inevitably stumble upon a few new technologies that I’ll incorporate into my own toolbox.

From past lists I’ve discovered new training tools like Kahoot! and PowToon, both of which I’ll still use to this day.

This year, I came across two new training technologies that seem like they could be really useful (or at least really fun) to begin playing with.  One focuses on interactive video, the other on augmented reality. Continue reading

What tools are you using for learning?


C4LPT 2015

For nine years, Jane Hart’s Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies (C4LPT) has published a top 100 list for tools used in learning.

I’m always fascinated by this list for two reasons:

  1. I love to compare the tools I use to the tools used by others, and it’s fun to see where my tools rank on this list, and
  2. I’ve found a variety of interesting new tools I otherwise wouldn’t have known about (such as PowToon and Kahoot) by scanning through the top 100 list and clicking on links of interesting-sounding technologies.
