Diigo is one of my favourite bookmarking websites and I have included it in several of my previous posts. Besides using it to bookmark articles and posts I want to read later I also use it as an annotating tool to highlight and comment on content I find online. I know probably all of you know about Diigo but what is new today is Webslides; a REALLY great and interesting web tool.
Webslides allows users to easily and instanly convert their bookmarks and feeds and present them as live web pages in an interactive slideshow format complete with the full content pages, links, and comments. It enables a new way to easily create and share unique presentations based on web content and user annotations. In other words, now you can turn the articles you have bookamrked from other websites into a visually attractive slideshow. You can also just grab the RSS Feed URL of the blog you like and turn its content into a presentation containing different slides and all generated for you for free.
Here are some of the ways you can use Webslides :
- Provides a quick briefing, a simple tutorial or guided tour on any subject
- Create a guided tour for any website
- Bundle important course resources for students
- Share your favourite web content with your students or friends
