10 Social Media Tools for Learning

’10 Social Media Tools for Learning’ is an article featured on Connie Malamed’s e-Learning Coach blog site. In this post, she details a variety of social media platforms that she has found to be particularly useful in her experience in the field of instructional technology. These descriptions include the name of the social media, their uses, links to their website’s, link’s to instructional tutorials on how to use them, etc.

The social media tools that made Connie Malamed’s Top 10 List:

  1. Audacity
  2. Edublogs Campus
  3. Elgg
  4. GoToMeeting/ GoToWebinar
  5. Google Collaboration Tools
  6. MindMeister
  7. TalkShoe
  8. VoiceThread
  9. Wikispaces
  10. Yammer

I would also include Diigo, a social media site for what is called “social bookmarking,” to Connie’s list. According to Wikipedia, social bookmarking is, “a centralized online service which enables users to add, annotate, edit, and share bookmarks of web documents.” Diigo is fun and unique in that it offers highlight and sticky note features to help users emphasize and organize content, which can then be shared publicly or within a specified group.
