Once your Diigo Educator application is approved, your account will be upgraded to have these additional features: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You can create student accounts for an entire class with just a few clicks (and student email addresses are optional for account creation) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students of the same class are automatically set up as a Diigo group so they can start using all the benefits that a Diigo group provides, such as group bookmarks and annotations, and group forums. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Privacy settings of student accounts are pre-set so that only teachers and classmates can communicate with them. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ads presented to student account users are limited to education-related sponsors. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>it can take 48 hrs to be approved, so today we will do the generic account </li></ul><ul><li>For more info visit: http://www. diigo .com/education </li></ul>

  15. 15.
