Sharing and organizing URLs

also posted at: http://blogs.sfu.ca/services/webct/

One of the useful tools in WebCT is the weblinks tool – I use it to add links to library resources, or permanent links to articles in our databases. This gives students direct access to assigned articles and hopefully encourages more familiarity with the library resources.

However, you can’t export and import links, which is an unfortunate lapse. My workaround is to use the online bookmark repository Delicious. We already keep some links in our LIDC account, and it is a simple step to showcase specific links on a webpage.

Contact an instructional designer or user experience designer at the LIDC for assistance in setting this up.
