    Using Delicious To Decrease Emails Using Delicious To Decrease Emails Presentation Transcript

    • Using Delicious to Decrease Emails
    • When you’re on a team
    • You often share resources with your team
    • And that can be very helpful
    • But…what happens when 30% of your emails are links to great resources?
    • Email clutter
    • Maybe it’s you, who’s doing the sharing
    • Hoping the people on the other end are excited to see your great resource
    • Or maybe…
    • You’re the recipient who is just a little frustrated…
    • to see one more email with just a link
    • Email has become the only tool people use
    • My dad always says…
    • If all you have is a hammer
    • Everything else is a nail
    • Unfortunately, email doesn’t always get that nail into the wood
    • No matter how hard you swing
    • Think about it…
    • With email…
    • Great resources quickly get lost in the clutter
    • Searching for and retrieving information is often painful and stressful
    • The only option for archiving and organizing these types of emails…
    • … is with folders…which can quickly get out of hand
    • Here’s where Delicious comes to save the day
    • Using Delicious, you can create a library of resource links that…
    • Can be accessed anywhere you have an internet connection… 1
    • … by anyone in the world
    • Can be quickly searched to find
      • exactly what you need…
      2
    • …using a search box
    • … or the handy dandy tags
    • Can include extra notes to provide even more useful information 3
    • Can eliminate the need to email links 4
    • So, how can you make this work for your team…
    • Sign up for an account … 1
    • … using an email address, user name & password that you will share with your team
    • Encourage your team to add browser buttons to quickly and easily save links to the delicious account 2
    • And to take the tour

    • You may want to come up with a standard set of tags to use for your team 4
    • What are tags?
    • Delicious says…
      • Tags are one-word descriptors that you assign to your bookmarks to help you organize and remember them
      http:// delicious.com/help/faq#tags
    • Tags are a little bit like keywords, but you choose them yourself and they do not form a hierarchy.
    • Assign as many tags to a bookmark as you like - you can always rename or delete the tags later
    • Tagging is a lot easier and more flexible than fitting your information into preconceived categories or folders
      • http://engagedlearning.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/tags-vs-hierarchy.png
    • Need more information on this whole social bookmarking phenomena?
      • Check out this video: Social Bookmarking in Plain English
    • Encourage your team to jump on the Delicious bandwagon and decrease emails
