I’d like to tell you about how I use it, but first take a quick look at this short 2 minute video so I can tell you a little bit about what it is…
If it looked like I had a lot of bookmarks, that’s because I do!! I’ve been using del.icio.us for about 3 years now and have collected over 1300 links. Math, Technology, and Education are three of my most frequent tags because for the last 8 years I’ve taught mathematics on the high school level. I’ve learned to save everything I find useful or interesting and label them liberally with tags so that way I can find what I need when I need it.
It’s been an invaluable resource and a huge timesaver— not only do I have access to my bookmarks online and can use it like a search engine, but del.icio.us also allows me to search links that other people have saved. And it’s easy to add an RSS feed of my links to keep up-to-date with my bookmarks! (hmmm… if you don’t know what RSS is, don’t worry–we’ll talk about that soon!).
There are of course many more features, and ways to use it, but hopefully you’ve heard enough to want to get started! Take a look at the links I’ve posted on this page for more information or you can go directly to del.icio.us and register for your own account!
