Practical Tip of the Day for Web 2.0 Neophytes -
Ever find yourself at home trying to retrieve that favorite website that you saved on your work computer? Ever try to upload all your home bookmarks to your work computer? Did you know there is an easier way?
Del.icio.us is a free, social bookmarking tool that allows you to have access to all your favorites no matter where you are as long as you have access to the Internet. This means you can retrieve your bookmarked sites ANYWHERE! How awesome is that?
John Pederson at Pederson's Designs has created a Del.icio.us Guide for Educators. He includes links, screen shots and simple text to take you through the process of understanding how to use Del.icio.us. It's a great resource that simplifies the process and explains how to tag and create networks.
For those of you who like to organize your favorites into folders, it's possible to bundle them into categories for easy retrieval like this:
It's also possible to collapse and expand the bundles. Funny, I looked everywhere on the Del.icio.us webiste for info on how to bundle links but couldn't find any information. I think you will find it to be pretty intutitive anway.
