What is Diigo?
Diigo stands for "Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other stuff." It is
a social bookmarking program that allows you to save your ‘favourites’ online,
so that they can be accessible from any computer with an internetconnection. However, Diigo does much more than this. As you read on the web, as well as bookmarking websites, you can alsohighlight parts of web pages that are of particular interest to you. Or, you canattach sticky notes to specific parts of web pages. These highlights and stickynotes are persistent - whenever you return to the original web page, you willsee your highlights and sticky notes superimposed on the original page, justwhat you would expect if you highlighted or wrote on a book!
The ‘social’ part of the bookmarking program is
also very useful. With everyDiigo user tagging and annotating pages online, the Diigo community hascollectively created a wonderful repository of quality content, filtered andannotated by the community, on almost any subject you may be interested in.For example, if you would like to find popular resources on e-learning,searching Diigo can probably get what you want in less time than usingsearch engines, and you may also gain insights from other users.For more information, go to http://www.diigo.com/about , or dive right in and
