Using Del.icio.us in Education

I think that Del.icio.us is one of the most useful Web 2.0 tools. It facilitates:
– saving and accessing your bookmarks online
– promoting your own sites (you bookmark in Del.icio.us your best pages, don’t you?)
– finding bookmarks from other users on your network (they are searching for relevant sites for you)
– networking with other users who are in your network.
– reading your network’s bookmarks, since Del.icio.us provides convenient RSS feeds.
– use a “profile” tag, such as emapey’s bookmarks tagged with “profile” on del.icio.us to feature your sites, best posts and articles and important sites linking to you.

You can start building your del.icio.us network. Join the EdTechTalk Del.icio.us network. You can also continue networking by joining some fans in the del.icio.us/network/edtechtalk

These are my emapey’s del.icio.us network bookmarks
Note how via “My Network”, I now have a stream of bookmarks from some Del.icio.us users I have selected. These users are searching the internet and bookmarking useful sites and pages for me !!!!!

I want to credit my friend FCEBLOG for some of the ideas included in this post.

  1. Thanks for the link. Diigo is really my primary bookmarking tool, but I keep everything in del.icio.us too. Diigo has some better options for sharing links with groups and friends; you can share links with just part of your network, for example.

    Del.icio.us still has a much bigger user base and network though. I use it now to search what other people have bookmarked on a topic. I usually start my search on Diigo, but if I can’t find what I need there, I switch to del.icio.us. Both are good services, just for different tasks.
