This is a good resource for teachers. Sub pages seem overwhelming. A bit too much information on each page.

Good site; found some new tools. Thanks! Home page design feels cluttered; additional categories would be helpful to further categorize social learning tools.

Wonderful collection of information about Web 2.0 links. Most every place I clicked on worked. However the need for updating would be endelss.

Technical Remarks:

Most links worked but some are outdated and should be removed. If the site were updated or monitored on a monthly basis, it would be accurate.

This site serves as a rich repository of materials spanning multiple functions, disciplines and outputs.  Additionally, it is a browser's delight with multiple offerings for anyone looking for a spark of creativity.  The potential for classroom use is high in that the majority of the resources are free, meaning students can take advantage of the technology well as instructors.

This is a splendid site that has been carefully constructed and kept up by Lenva Shearing from New Zealand. It is definitely a great organizational tool for Web 2.0 tools.
