What Is It?

Diigo is a social bookmarking application that allows users to share bookmarks with others or keep them private and access them from any web browser. Diigo is different from most bookmarking tools. It allows you to not only save the URL of a website, but annotate it, archive it , and share both your bookmarks and archived research with others. If you install the toolbar, you also have the ability to highlight
text and pictures in a variety of colors or add sticky notes to a bookmarked page.

Diigo in Education

These are special premium accounts provided specifically to K-12 & higher-ed educators. Once your Diigo Educator application is approved, your account will be upgraded to have these additional features:
  • You can create student accounts for an entire class with just a few clicks (email for students is not required)
  • 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
  • Privacy settings of student accounts are pre-set so that only teachers and classmates can communicate with them
  • Ads presented to student account users are limited to education-related sponsors
