Moving from Delicious to Diigo

I’ve moved my bookmarks from Delicious to Diigo, which I’ll probably start using this summer for my second-semester freshman composition classes.  I’ve been requiring my students to create accounts on Delicious to bookmark sites they find and use for class.  This last semester, we had problems because new users are required to create new Yahoo! accounts or use existing ones.  Students who used existing accounts had trouble logging on again later.

Diigo appears to have all of the functions Delicious does and more, including

  • groups
  • highlighting and comments on webpages
  • educational accounts
  • messages
  • blogs

Because of the EasyBlog feature, I can use Diigo instead of both Delicious and Blogger for my classes.  (I have my students use blogs as research journals.)  With the group feature, I won’t have to put links to students’ blogs and bookmarking accounts on the class wiki.

Delicious Is Getting Stale

For the last couple of years, I’ve had my second-semester freshman composition students use Delicious to bookmark sites they find and use in their research.  This semester, though, students who tried to use existing Yahoo! accounts for Delicious have had trouble when they tried to log in again, and the use of the Yahoo! logins had made the registration process longer and more difficult.

I’m thinking of using Diigo instead.  I’ve opened an account, and I found this video on YouTube:

I’d appreciate any information about using Diigo for college classes.

My 2000th Bookmark

Today I created my 2000th bookmark in my Delicious account:

  • Panabee is a faster way to search and compare sites. See results from Google, Bing, Twitter, Amazon, Wikipedia, and others with one click. View sites side-by-side.

It was included in an earlier post today with other bookmarks I created today.
