This week, easier than a random bookmarks page or writing in your notebook, and certainly easier than writing on a wooden wheeled carraige, we explore Diigo. Diigo has features that are not only useful, but magical.

Love a website and wish you could highlight and leave a post-it note with your thoughts, then save it AND share it with a friend? Diigo!

Wish you could simply put searchable tags on all of your bookmarks instead of a complicated folders system? Diigo!

Wish you could call up a list of all the sections you highlighted on a website or PDF, then click one to jump to right to it instead of scanning through page after page of text?? Diigo!

My Diigo Library. The bookmarks with the blue dots are marked to read later!

This week’s task requirements with Diigo: (7 points)

  • Set up your free account.

  • Add a minimum of eight links, properly tagged and highlight the parts of the web pages you like best to create an annotated list for a web page. Take a screen shot of one annotated website and submit on Padlet.

    Not quite sure what annotating is? Diigo has a wonderul short article all about it that was presented to you in Lessn 1. Here it is again for review.

  • Watch for an invitation from me to join the class Diigo group with the same name as this course. This is a private group where we will begin sharing our links. Collaboration collaboration collaboration. When you accept my invitation and log in, you will find I have already populated the group with some links. Some you will already have used, others we will get to. We will be sharing links via Diigo and Pinterest this semester.
