  • Why? For future reference Advantages Ease of saving & retrieval to read later, to read again, to save googling, to save printing, to recall for e-mailing to a colleague or student Limitations Located on a single machine – not always accessible or available Housekeeping overhead Not-easily shareable Duplication of work – for access on other machines, sharing with colleagues or students Not dynamic or flexible – folder-based rather than tag based – where would you put a resource about Social Networking in HE which may refer to Economics & Geography? Furtive, singular activity –no crediblity tools, no idea who else has saved it
  • Advantages Accessible from anywhere – web rather than pc based Easy to share Easy to organise Dynamic – fixed weblink but ever changing resources Credible – how many people have saved a resource Searchable – resources, people, descriptions, tags Access to experts Community building – friends, sharing, recommending Limitations Tagging and organising is an acquired skill Folksonomies – where traditional taxonomies are replaced by emerging, individual ways of describing and collating resources – can cause confusion
