So, what’s new with Diigo 5.0?
Diigo-a social bookmarking site that goes way beyond what is provided through del.icio.us!
Video tutorial/overview of Diigo features on YouTube: Diigo V3: Highlight & Share the Web! Social Bookmarking 2.0
An excellent blog post about getting started on Diigo by Kristin Hokanson.
Kristin has also held a ustream.tv conversation with people learning about Diigo and it provides some great tutorial/startup information about Diigo.
Very helpful blog post by Ryan Bretag with chart comparing features of Diigo, Del.icio.us and Zotero.
Social Bookmarking: Making the Web Work for You
This is an excellent video response to the video tutorial above (Diigo V3: Highlight and Share the Web! Social Bookmarking 2.0). It would be a great starting point for people who don't know what Diigo is all about and how it's much more than a social bookmarking tool. Great tutorial!
Diigo - Improving how we find, share, and save information
This is another good YouTube video explaining features of Diigo. It is all visuals of screen shots and how everything works--no talking, just background music. :-) Very easy to understand!
Digging Deeper with Diigo
This is an outstanding overview of Diigo created by Jennifer Dorman for the Classroom 2.0 LIVE Workshop in Philadelphia, September 19, 2008.
She provides a video of her presentation that was captured on UStream.tv as well as a Slideshare version of her PowerPoint slides. It is an excellent overview of all of the Diigo features and ways Diigo can be used in the classroom.
You can also view the slides from her presentation here (shared on Slideshare.net)
Jennifer has also created a compilation of Diigo Tutorials on Google Notebook (many of which are already on our page) that are well worth checking out. It's great to have all of these tutorials compiled in one place!
WebSlides on Diigo
During our April Westside AzTEA meeting I shared a WebSlide I created compiling all of the links from the Shownotes on Shawn Wheeler's recent podcast (Adventures in Podcasting). It's very easy to do and provides an easy way to select specific websites with highlights and notes for your students. It's also a great way to compile websites for a professional development presentation. All of the pages in a Webslide are interactive and you can navigate the page without leaving your Webslide presentation.
This is a great, short video that shows you how to create Webslides on Diigo and provides some good ideas for ways you can use the Webslides feature, both for your own professional development and in your classroom.
This is another example of a Webslide presentation I created with a Diigo list to share some of my favorite photo online photo applications with the Classroom 2.0 LIVE Workshop held in Phoenix, AZ on May 8-9, 2008.
Diigolet is a "super bookmarklet" that allows you to highlight and add sticky-notes, in addition to simple bookmarking. Just drag the link provided on the above site to your toolbar in Firefox, Flock, Safari, Opera, Maxthon or Internet Explorer, and start sharing your bookmarks/favorites.
Here's another example of something created almost instantly with Skitch. Concept map demonstrating Diigo created by Miguel Guhlin-captions created on Skitch to his uploaded document.
