There is a plethora of supplemental information available on the web. It can be tricky gathering all the relevant sources and sharing them with your students or colleagues. Every time a new website is found, you must send out the link or manually add it to your list. With social-bookmarking through Delicious, you no longer have to deal with the tedious process involved.
Delicious, and other social-bookmarking sites, allows you to establish an account to share your bookmarks with others. Once you account is established you can simply add it to your Delicious list and “tag” it into a category. Tagging your bookmarks groups the sources into specific areas that are more easily shared with others.
Let’s see how this could work for your class. Say you have a list of 20 or so websites that offer additional information that could benefit students. In the old days you had to either print out and distribute your list of links or add them to your HuskyCT site one by one. Now, with Delicious, you can simply set up your list via your account and tag them into a category (your course name for example). Now your students, and whoever else you want to share with, can view the dynamic list of external sources by viewing a single web address (your personal Delicious page link).
