Sharing links with Diigo

Ever wanted to share something? AMcC
Did you ever need to share a link with your class, team mates, or friends? Picture a teacher with a class of 1st graders. "Boys and girls, just go up to the box at the top and type in http://…" Not gonna happen. Of course, you can bookmark the link in the browser. For every computer your students ever use. Not.

Making a weblock
If you have a program such as Apple Remote Desktop, you can make a weblock and blast it to any or all computers. Great if you have the software, but it will only remain there till someone deletes it. Not a permanent link.

Like other bookmarking services, such as Delicious and I Keep Bookmarks, Diigo will store your bookmarks online, where students can search them. More about searching in my next post.
Need to share with colleagues? Diigo and Delicious both offer a way to email a link right from the website, without having to switch your email program. Diigo is easier and more versatile.
