 Your Top 10 Favourite Tools  Updates to your Top 10 Tools favourite tools
Please provide the names of your 10 favourite tools for creating learning for others, for your own professional practice or personal productivity PLUS a sentence or two why you like each one.
Here are some definitions as well as guidelines on choosing your tools:
* By "learning" we mean both formal and informal learning - as well as performance support
* By "tools" we mean software, online tools and services
Guidelines for choosing your tools
* You don't have to rank the tools yourself unless you want to; they could just as easily be in alphabetical order
* They don't have to be the tools you most frequently use rather they should be your favourite tools
* Don't feel obliged to choose tools that others haven't mentioned
* Choose ten tools only; please avoid combinations of tools in each choice
* MS Office tools should be treated separately i.e. Word, PowerPoint, Excel etc
* Google tools should be treated separately, e.g. Google Search, Google Calendar, Google Maps, iGoogle, etc.
* If you are a software/tools vendor or provider, feel free to mention your own product as one of your 10 tools. However, we will only accept one entry per software/tool vendor/provider to ensure results aren't skewed.
Your entry will appear on a page of its own at the website. Your updated entry will appear on your existing webpage at the Centre.
You will be able to update your list in 6 months if you wish.
