Diigo Bookmarking

Last week's OIT webinar provided an overview for three tools: Diigo, Evernote, and Dropbox. Additional sessions will focus on each of these individually. 

Diigo is described as a social bookmarking tool that is 'in the cloud'. However, this tool does far more than simply bookmark favorites. As listed on the website, Diigo is "a personal research tool, collaborative  research platform, social content site, and knowledge-sharing community". By creating a private group for your class you give students continuing access to resources outside the classroom that become a part of their personal library. Diigo is a tool that can be used as a lifelong technology.  Students and faculty can build an annotated bibliography that is accessible anytime, anyplace and from any mobile device.
