What is Diigo?

At its most simple, Diigo is a social bookmarking website where you can save your bookmarks and flinks to access from any computer. Watch "Social Bookmarking in Plain English", for a brief explanation on Social Bookmarking:

"Diigo is two services in one -- it is a research and collaborative research tool on the one hand, and a knowledge-sharing community and social content site on the other."

You can:
  • bookmark sites
  • share your favorite links with others
  • build a group
  • have a list for yourself and/or to share with others
  • highlight pages
  • add sticky notes to websites
  • capture and annotate images

Reasons for use

  • store all of your bookmarks in one place - not computer specific
  • share bookmarks easily with other
  • tag bookmarks with specific topics to create resource lists for classes, projects, units, lessons, etc
  • create lists and groups to more easily share resources

Ease of use

Diigo is easy to use after the toolbar is installed. Check out the SLItech blog about Diigo.
