Open Source eLearning Tools. I was just asked about trends in open source for eLearning and particularly open source eLearning tools.
Probably one of the better sources on this is Jane Hart’s Instructional Tools Directory. You can find a long list of tools broken into authoring tools, games/simulations, quiz/test tools, social media, delivery platforms, tracking and whether they support mobile. In addition, she indicates if they are free or cost money – which is not quite the same thing as open source. Beyond that, probably the best thing to do is to use eLearning Learning to go through it’s open source eLearning and open source eLearning Tools. Here’s some of what I pulled out. Open Source LMS Moodle Open Source Authoring and Open Source eLearning Development Audacity – open source audio editing Scuttle – an open source social bookmarking tool.

Using an unlimited number of Boards , you can collaborate with friends, family, co-workers and even strangers...if you like that sort of thing.
We've seen boards with twenty Columns , which is no big deal for Pegby. With sweet minimization and drag and drop capability, create as many Columns as you'd like but focus on the ones that matter to you in the moment. Pegby began with the Card . Pegby's core strength and flexibility comes from the simple, good-natured Card . Ah, the Stack , the must have and most often used feature. We know Pegby is useful to one, but it becomes even more integral to daily life when it is shared with others. Your Board is a bit too full?

Create Virtual Room. The 100 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You. The Wordle of this list!
(Click image to enlarge) One of the most popular posts on Edudemic in 2010 was The 35 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You and I felt it might be time for an update to that list for 2011.

Additionally, you have the ability to create multiple backup/sync'ed folders and configure them differently for different devices, and if you're looking to buy additional storage, SpiderOak is half the price. At the core, SpiderOak is heads and tails above Dropbox. Now, Dropbox is more popular and more well known, and that has led to its use in more 3rd party applications. I use both services, however, with Dropbox, I only store data of a less-sensitive nature - mostly files I have gotten off the Internet and files I want to share with friends.
For data I want to insure is private (and with 50GB of free storage, that's all the documents and files that I generate), I use SpiderOak because that data is encrypted on my machine before it is sent to the SpiderOak servers.
