The hype of Web 2.0 is ubiquitous, but why should we try to make it work with training and elearning? We’ll take a look at some things to consider when adding a 2.0 tool. A number of directories currently list 2,400-2,500 or more Web 2.0 tools to choose from. There seems to be a new one every day, and the names keep getting more weird. What’s an elearning specialist to do? We’ll also consider a short list of ones I think are worthy of spending some time with. I’ll share with you some of the ones I’ve tried, some of the ones I’ve tanked and why I won’t be tweeting any time soon. Plus, we’ll collect your thoughts on tools to love and hate and ignore.
