Social Bookmarking

Social bookmarking is a way of collaborating with fellow teachers, researchers especially those teaching the same curriculum or doing related research. It is also a way of directing and monitoring students’ progress. Your bookmark is saved to a public sight such as delicous.com. Your favourites will be online. Thus, you can access them from anywhere. It is by far a superior tool to book marking which only saves them onto your PC. Resources stacks are built and tagged with keywords. You can see what other tags are set in your area of interest and identify where and when they were set. You can also generate RSS feeds via keywords and embed them into VLE to track the progress of research topics and relevant resources. Some social bookmarking sites are linked so you can synchronies your accounts if you are using more than one of those.
