Quick Note: Webpages about Webpages

Recently, I was looking to set up a page of web links for my students to use in class and at home. I thought of Diigo and its social bookmarking, but that required a little more setup and “front loading” with my students than I was hoping for. So, I did some research and found some great resources.

Before long, I began to realize that I really didn’t want to make separate webpage because of the time involved. That’s when I discovered that the URL shortening service called Bit.ly has a “bundling” feature that allows one to create a page of links and descriptions that all share one URL. Fur.ly is another tool that goes one step further and includes thumbnail screen shots of the webpages that are all linked from one page.

I would strongly recommend either tool for those of you finding yourselves in the same situation.
