Digging Diigo ...

for bookmarking and discussion ~ we have a group site @ CDL_CMC11 for Diigo and one can use it as a bookmarking service (offline, in a cloud to save precious hard drive space) as well as a discussion space. In the most recent time period a long term MOOC participant and myself are the only ones using it.  What a shame as it really is a great option for learning and then going back to see what has transpired most recently on the site.

I admit I have not been the best at tagging, or annotating (usually do not), and I am woefully absent in commenting for discussion rejoinders.  My bad!  I am trying to remember to use this to its best advantage ... especially since my mental retrieval system tends to be rather faulty ... who am I kidding ... it is really very faulty.  Diigo can be my memory assistant :)

Note recently posted example included below.  If you are a credit seeking participant, the Learning Contract outlines the expectation of at least10 resources posted ... maybe some astute tagging, a wee bit of annotating and some replies from others will occur.  Hope springs eternal :)


  1. Hi Carol, I was wondering if you could provide some clarification on what counts as a resource posted? I have been making weekly blog posts and just did my first Diigo post tonight, and I want to make sure that I am doing everything I need to do to get credit for the course. Thanks!

    1. Jon, all that ~ blog posts, FB discussion, Diigo, comments on all of the preceding ~ can be part of your PLE. Put it all down in one place, and you'll have, in MOOC parlance, a digital artifact.

  2. Here is a link to the CMC11 Diigo group https://groups.diigo.com/group/cdl_cmc11. I don't see a separate link for this conversation: just scroll down. The 'most recent' setting brings the most current - posted or commented on discussion - to the top of the page.
