Thing #13: Del.icio.us

I use Del.icio.us a lot! I’ve still got a a set of my most used bookmarks in my browser for quick access but pretty much everything else goes into my Del.icio.is account. Most importantly I use my account to post the links that are relevant to my workshops and presentations. For example, I’ve tagged all the links for my blogging workshop with "class-blogs". This way, I can sent all of the blogging workshop attendees to http://del.icio.us/travelinlibrarian/class-blogs instead of giving them a piece of paper with a long list of sites and URLs on it. Also, with this method, after class, attendees can return to this URL whenever they like and see the most recent resources that I feel are relevant to the topic. I’ve been doing this for a little over two years now and all my students have grabbed onto the concept quite well.
