Annotary | Bookmarking Research Tool

I have tried many bookmarking services for research before, but I have settled for a few favorites. I love Diigo’s content curation capabilities, Pocket for mobile content, Pinterest for my addiction to eye candy and EduClipper for education. What if I told you there is a new FREE service that combines features from all of these into one.

Welcome to Annotary a new service that allows you to highlight content from the web, create collections of the best stuff you find and share it with students, colleagues, family and friends. They have made it real easy for you to bookmark your finds, and have extensions for both Chrome, and Firefox. You can highlight webpages and take notes. The pages stay highlight and they are added to a collection to be shared with others. You can also explore their site and see what other users have been bookmarking. They also have a built-in search engine that searches all of the collections in Annotary. Sharing can be done on all major social networks or through an e-mail. What do you think? I like it so far. So go ahead highlight the web and share your notes. Watch the demo video below and post your comments. Learn more about Annotary by visiting their website at http://annotary.com/

Clipix – Organize your Life!

A new bookmarking service that takes everything I liked about Pinterest to a whole new level. There is huge potential for this to become a great collaboration tool for education. You could use this for your Flipped Classroom assignments and the feature set lends itself to Project Based Learning as well. They have two killer features in my opinion, and many others you will love. Syncboard, allow you to share clipboards with your students and colleagues (requires a Clipix account, but you can invite them by e-mail); Multiboard which lets you create clipboard collections by just dragging them to the clipboard of your choice. The drag and drop functionality makes it easy for you to rearrange stuff and that is a winner as well. Follow this link to sign up for Clipix
