Here is a more specific online bookmarker called Scoop.it. You can curate your own free online library -- videos, articles, and other resources, including multimedia.

Moodle is an open-source course management system available to schools to create and facilitate their own online courses - for free!

When we learn
online, how do we
know which information
we research is trustworthy?
"Social bookmarking" programs
are one important way. When
people whose discernment we trust
curate, or collect, online articles and

bookmarker and share their articles. With one click on Diigo, you can bookmark articles and save them to your own free online library; then others can come to your curated
Diigo library and pick out articles you trust! Click here

By creating this quiz and the discussion down below in Moodle, we learned some of the basic elements of a good online class in Moodle.
Below is an example of what Moodle looks like on the inside, in my Mod 3 discussion post. Facilitating a discussion online means choosing the content and then drawing your students out so they make meaning together using techniques of critical thinking.
