oIGoogle, Google Docs, Google Earth – Google needs it’s own session.  Strength is in it’s customization and collaboration.  Excellent communication tool.
oNetvibes – Very similar to IGoogle.  You customize your home page and it updates all your categories.
oMoodle – Moodle needs it’s own full day session.  Greatest web 2.0 application on your server.  Blogs, wikis, chats, groups, multimedia, videos, etc.
