Online Bookmarking

Goal: To bookmark, annotate, and share online resources in a cloud based system that allows for collaboration with others.

• Create a Diigo account
• Bookmark, tag, & describe 5 resources
• Annotate and highlight two pages
  1. Access from any device
  2. Easy to organize and search with the use of tags*.
  3. Items can be tagged with multiple labels**.  
  4. Highlight and leave notes, just like a textbook
  5. Share with students and collaborate with others
