The amount of information on the internet can be overwhelming, how do you find and organize useful websites? As a drug information pharmacist I have 300+ favorites saved in my web browser which I refer to on a regular basis. I have accumulated these resources over several years and organized them into folders in my web browser. Each folder has websites that are useful for answering a specific drug information question (ex. drug interactions, herbal products, immunizations, etc).
Social bookmarking is a relative new way to save and organize bookmarks in an online environment. In addition to saving your own bookmarks, the social aspect allows you to share your bookmarks with others and find useful bookmarks added by other members. This slidecast presentation is an overview of Diigo, a social bookmarking website that has many addition tools, like highlighting and WebSlides presentation. For those that are interested, my Diigo bookmarks can be found here.
Diigo Prezi Presentation
As I mentioned in a previous post I have been experimenting with a presentation tool called Prezi. The concept map I created in that last post helped to organize the content I wanted to used, but I found Prezi quite difficult to use even with the assistance of the help section. Despite the steep learning curve, I still like Prezi and will continue to experiment with it in future presentations.
