There’s a great online social bookmarking service that recently came to my attention (Diigo.com) that the CLENE community (and all interested in staff development and training) can use to share bookmarks of interest with each other

Playing around today, I set up a CLENERT group at: http://groups.diigo.com/groups/clenert and added a few of my own bookmarks.

Diigo has many nice features including:

  • RSS feed for new content (http://groups.diigo.com/rss/clenert/bookmark)
  • Ability to comment on and discuss bookmarks
  • Automatic caching of bookmarked pages!
  • Ability to view new bookmarks as a slideshow (great for those of us who are visual)
  • Browser based bookmarklet (which allows highlighting, commenting AND virtual sticky notes–so you can annotate those bookmarks!!)

If you want to try it, simply go to http://groups.diigo.com/groups/clenert, click join and add a few bookmarks.  I highly recommend adding the “diigolet” bookmarklet to your browser toolbar–it makes bookmarking and annotating a snap!!  If fact, Pandia Search Engine News just listed it as #1 among the top 5 bookmarking tools.

There are many more possibilities here… I think Diigo lends itself beautifully to collaborative working/learning projects.   So, whaddya all think?

Here’s a 4 minute intro video:
