  2. 2. <ul><li>Over 4,800 Education Groups on Diigo </li></ul><ul><li>Groups are individuals with common interests that center around key topics. </li></ul><ul><li>Generally, opened to everyone but there are also closed groups like classroom groups </li></ul><ul><li>Group Roles: Moderator, Participant, Lurker. </li></ul><ul><li>Group Moderators/Owners handle group maintenance chores. </li></ul>

  4. 11. Lists = “bundles” in deli.cio.us http://www.diigo.com/list/abubnic
  5. 14. Lists will appear in your drop-down menu … just like Groups.
  6. 15. <ul><li>Lists are automatically alphabetized but if you do research in more than one area, your focus areas will all be mixed in together. </li></ul><ul><li>Ideally, it would be nice to have folders for each sub-topic area. But they don’t exist. </li></ul>Here’s a work-around that will do the trick… Alphabetize Your Diigo Lists by Focus Areas
  7. 16. Rename Your lists. Use the Focus Area name, followed by / … to create a sub-folder.
  8. 17. My alphabetized lists ... http://www.diigo.com/list/abubnic Your lists will now be alphabetized both in the drop down menu and on your list page.
  9. 18. Ways that I use Diigo Lists... http://www.diigo.com/list/abubnic <ul><li>Embed them in my web site when it’s info that is rapidly changing. </li></ul><ul><li>Share them with colleagues. </li></ul><ul><li>Give the URLs to people on Twitter who are looking for info. </li></ul><ul><li>Example link on web site: http://www.ctap4.net/projects/cybersafety/administrator-resources.html </li></ul><ul><li>(The link to “sexting topics” takes you to DIIGO). </li></ul>
