The eLearning Learning site got a major upgrade a few weeks ago, with a new design that has more of a magazine feel and shows more images. I know many of my readers are new to the field of e-learning, or hoping to transition. eLearning Learning is a great site to get a snapshot of what people are talking about in the field without being as overwhelming as subscribing to dozens of individual blogs can be. Personally, I do subscribe to many of the blogs featured on this site, but not everything, and I often find little gems that I didn’t see through my other channels.
In the black bar at the top of the page, you can change editions to see different time frames. This is a quick way to see the top posts for an entire month, for example. I was pleasantly surprised to see one of my posts, Questioning Gagné and Bloom’s Relevance, at the top of the page for the August top e-learning posts. These top posts are selected based on various social signals like tweets, social bookmarks, etc.
Here are some other top posts you might enjoy:

Thanks to Tony Karrer for managing this great resource. eLearning Learning refers about as much traffic to me as Google (if I add together all the different Google URLs), so I know other people are finding it useful as well.
By the way, if you’re wondering about that top referrer, that’s a support forum for WordPress.com blogs that links to my 2008 post on Hunting for Subscriber Stats. Three years later, there still isn’t a good way to see your overall RSS subscriber traffic for WordPress.com blogs, so people are still fumbling around with kludges like my method.
