What are your top learning blogs/resources?

Over the last four years of blogging, I’ve developed a personal list of blogs and resources that I follow daily. What started out as primarily an elearning forum has evolved to include knowledge management, communities, technology and social trends, networks, etc.

Over the last while, I’m getting the urge to expand my information network. I still very much value the wisdom of “old friends”, but desire to expand my existing thought/idea architecture.

So, which blogs and information sources do you find most valuable in your daily reading? I’ve opened the comment forum on this post (feel free to introduce your own blog!).

    That’s a toughy, I read almost 80 blogs per day. After brutal editing – list is down to 12.

    The main 5.
    The EDU_RSS list from http://www.downes.ca

    Don’t think I have time for any more, unless there are specific articles / posts.

  6. My list…

    Edu_RSS (which feels a bit like cheating, but it’s my best source for the blogsphere)

    Peter Suber’s FOS news

    The major mailing lists: DEOS-L, WWWEDU, TRDEV, etc

    University Business Daily – I hardly ever link items from them but I read it for good background

    CPEN’s Public Education Newsblast (or whatever it’s called)


    E-Media Tidbits

    Google Alert – I have some email and tech alerts set up, lots of good stuff there

    Australian Flexible Learning Network (includes Networking as well)

    UNESCO World Newsletter

    Some Yahoo Groups: rss-dev, syndication, semantic web, elearning leaders, etc

    Some magazines send me regular notices: First Monday, Ubiquity, Learning Circuits, EDUCAUSE Review – but most magazine articles I pick up from the blogosphere

    What I want: better coverage of academic publications – journal articles are difficult to get, and even when online, are almost never in RSS feeds or anything similar; usually I get journal articles via direct reference (ie., someone emails me) or by random browsing
