The University of Otago includes a team of staff who you may not have heard about. They are the ITS Teaching and Learning team. This team supports teaching and learning tools for the university and is an excellent source of information about tools that can be linked to from within Moodle or Blackboard.
If you are interested in learning about the tools they support, check out their eLearning Toolbox. This toolbox lists all the tools they currently support and gives you the ability to filter the list by your requirements.
For example, do you want to collaborate with others? Choose that requirement from the dropdown list and you can see that there are six options from the list that are recommended for collaboration.
How about collecting data and feedback? Well, with that requirement chosen, a list of five tools appears.
To learn more about any of the tools, just click on its icon. A window will open with a brief description of the tool and the option to see an example at work or register to use the tool.
They are also open to suggestions for new tools that might be useful to the university. So, if you have a great eLearning tool that you think others might be interested in, drop them a line.
Oh, and they have a toolbox for researchers too. You can visit the eResearch Toolbox to learn more.
