    Does anyone know if there are any groups or resources specifically aimed at using Diigo for collaborative learning, researching and other goals in college or university classes. While there is much in this group that is of value to all teachers willing to experiment, there are also some differences between the higher education classes and the majority of what is being discussed here. As a newcomer to Diigo, I could use some help with this.

    I'm using Diigo in an Intro to Sociology college course. Collaborative group research online replaces the traditional textbook. Students research the concepts and write them up themselves. If anyone else is doing this, or wants to, let's start a new group.

    This is exactly the kind of thing I am talking about -- my field is anthropology, and the idea of students generating and evaluating knowledge cooperatively in this way is very intriguing. I would love to hear more about exactly how you are doing this, the kinds of assignments, and so forth.

    Bill, I have just completed an article on my experiment. I'd be happy to email the draft to you, and would appreciate any comments.

    hi
    we use diigo in our masters in photojournalism and documentary photography as a dynamic way of sharing links etc, and for group collaborative research projects where we set up a tag for the project and then get the class to add links, then divide the material up between the class and get each studnet to read x no of articles and then write a summary of each, then share that with the rest of the class, so very quickly the whole group get a goods sense of the research out there on the web

    this is mike wesch's approach to purpose driven research, where he uses a whole variety of social learnign tools to co research with his class, see the links here for more on his social anthropology course at kansas

    Hi all,

    I also teach an undergrad, first year biology at a community college. It is a hybrid class where the students only come into class for lab and the rest is online. My peer teaches a chemistry class the same way. Neither of these are for majors and they are only 1 semester.

    My question:

    I would like to use this tool and develop a collaborative project between the chem and bio students. I was thinking we could do something on the scientific method as we both teach that but I am not sure how to use this tool yet.
    Does anyone have ideas?

    Thanks!!

    Some questions: Is it possible to get an RSS feed of group annotated links that are no longer live pages, but are instead highlighted static pages? This way I can get a feed of a the links that students mark up and write on - no matter if the website becomes defunct as does many featured news articles...
