Jane Hart's 2011 Update: Top 100 Tools for Learning

Jane Hart, in the Learning in the Social Workplace blog, just released her final tally for this year's survey.
Here are a few quick observations from the author:
This year, as for the last couple of years, the #1 tool is Twitter. But here are a few observations on this year’s list.
  • The list is dominated once again by free, online social tools - and proprietary content development tools continue to decline.
  • The top three tools – Twitter, YouTube and Google Docs – retain their positions from 2010.
  • Other tools have moved up the list since 2010. This include Vimeo (up 41 places) and Yammer (up 37 places).
  • There are 23 new tools on the list this year, the highest placed of which is Google+, followed by TED and Scoop.it.
  • Other tools have moved down the list, and some have moved off the list completely. Notably this includes Firefox (which was actually the #1 tool in the first survey of tools in 2007) and Second Life.
