When I was updating the Directory of Learning Tools for 2011, I reviewed each and everyone of the 2,000+ tools in the list. But there was one tool that jumped out at me as being importantly different: SimplyBox – described as “the only decentralized and contextual enterprise communication solution” .
There are a number of reasons why I think this is an interesting tool:
- You can link groups of people around a particular set of content
- You don’t have to leave your current application to communicate with others, they are right there when you need them.
- You don’t need IT to install it.
I believe this approach will help support a more social way of working and learning in organizational workflows.

And I’m not the only one that thinks it is worth watching in 2011.
UPDATE: And of course there’s Simply Box for Education too.
