top 10 website resources

Following on from our top 10 e-learning resources here is our top 10 website resources. These are the sites that we find useful and we use them most days. Everyone in the office has a favourite site and they all feature in the list. Today I’ve been on the Edge website and found out that the sequel to wii sports is the fastest selling game in Japan and Futurelab have more free resources that you can download….and FWA have uploaded their site of the day.

Enjoy!

 

Smashing Magazine

This website has a design focus but is packed full of free resources and tutorials. This is a great place if you are looking for ideas and inspiration. The free resources that have been submitted cover a wide range of uses from WordPress themes to Icon sets.

 

Istock Photo

The images are not free, but the prices are low and the image quality is good. A vast range of images, icons, videos and stock assets that come in useful.

 

TED

TED comes up on a number of our lists but we keep on finding it useful! A great website to view some inspirational thinkers and to get inspired. Our favourites is still the Jonny Lee remote control.

 

BBC Learning Zone

A whole host of videos for a range of subjects. Our current favourite is the Royal Navy using computer games during submarine training courses.

 

The app store

You’ll need an iphone or an ipod touch but if you are ever on the move and need to find something out there will be an app for it. We’ve downloaded GPS devices, flight trackers, games, training apps, News feeds and something that turns the iphone into a torch.

 

Edge Online

The home of Edge magazine, if you want to find out something about the videogame industry this website has all the news alongside some great articles.

 

Futurelab

Innovation in Education

Offering a host of whitepapers, articles, links and a lot more. Futurelab also have a range of printed support materials including posters. We’ve just got hold of the their game based learning poster

 

Harvard Business Working Knowledge

Subscribe to the email for details of the latest papers or download the podcast to listen to interviews. Covers a wide range of business topics and all in manageable chunks. 

 

Norfolk e-learning forum

Ok, we are a little biased with this one! We are able to get some great speakers to come along to our events, some of who you might never have heard of but they all provide us with great resources from their presentations.

 

FWA

The favourite website awards. Every day they upload a new website for you to look at. Not strictly anything to take away or download but this site will provide you with a whole host of ideas if you are stuck on your next design project.
