I started using del.icio.us a few weeks ago because I was hearing so much about it and because I kept noticing the bookmarking button on various websites. I have since become a devoted user! What a great tool! I have been bookmarking all kinds of sites that I plan on using for the professional development class I will be teaching this fall. I have also started collecting websites that I will use for different history classes that will be visiting in just a few weeks. One thing I haven’t tried until this tutorial, though, is exploring bookmarks by searching various tags. I came across some interesting websites. It’s fun to see what people are collecting. I just wonder how many catalogers out there are cringing at this open “cataloging” system.

I was also intrigued at the del.icio.us tutorial that Santa Cruz public library offers. Not that it was the most spectacular video but I love the idea of having it readily available. I would LOVE to have tutorials online for my students but our district does not allow YouTube. Anyone know of a similar video hosting site that would be comparable?
