Sign up for Diigo

Diigo is a tool for social bookmarking and social annotation. That means it's a service for bookmarking pages and then accessing them from any computer. You can also make notes and then share those notes with someone else via email.

Go to Diigo here.
I highly recommend the Demo video.

For Wed, please sign up for Diigo, download the toolbar, and try to bookmark a page with notes. For now choose a page that has something to do with our current topic of changing literacies.

Diiigo Toolbar

  1. Sign up for an account or using a new username or Open ID
  2. Install the Diigo toolbar. (Use Firefox for best results).
  3. Click the "bookmark" icon to book mark a page.
  4. Highlight some text.
  5. Mouseover that text and choose from the menu "add stickynote."
  6. Share that page with me by choosing the "Send" icon and emailing it to me.

Coach, I downloaded the Diigolet, found a page, annotated it and everything, but I can't find the "send" feature.

Here's the link of the page.

I think I did it right.... oh well.
