welcome to the eelearning wiki. this wiki is an extension of my blog eelearning. initially i'll review web2.0 applications i've examined and give my impression of their value both for you individually as well as their value as learning tools.


dave's favorite (and not so favorite) web 2.0 applications


go right to the table.


seems i've become somewhat of a go-to guy amongst my colleagues when it comes to web2.0 applications. i guess it's all those hours i've spent exploring the latest tools as they appear. so i've decided to bring some rhyme and reason (at least my particular brand of reasoning to the process).


each application i report on will have a page in this wiki where i layout my analysis of the application and the give it a rating from one "e" to five "e"s. five being the tools i reccommend.


here is the key to the e's:

effectiveness rating-the e'scoolness rating
fagiddaboutit!=only a bithead could enjoy this
if ya really need to=this is my dad's web
it's ok, can't hurt=it's cool if it's useful
pretty groovy. it'll do the job.=get your dark shades out
if you're not using this one you're not 2.0=the fonz has nothing on you


since there is such a great interest in how (and if) these tools can be used effectively in learning settings, i'll be rating each twice. first, my opinion on how effective the application is for personal use and second, how effective it might be for use in a learning setting.



there are some web 2.0 applications which are just simply cool. some are also effective and serve a purpose. some are just cool. like blow your mind away cool. so i'm including a coolness rating as well.



the content of these pages is not meant to be comprehensive of all available applications. nor are the ratings i apply by any means subjective. there are other resources who are more comprehensive and relatively objective. a particular favorite of mine is pete cashmore's mashable. but i don't know of anyone doing quite the listing like this that rates the learning environment efficacy of the applications.
