No Hiding Your Talents and No Bad Dogs: Happy New Year


Three things to note.

1. Sandra Sinfield has been hiding her candles under a basket. We need to let her shine, a nova in the winter’s dark. No, really you gotta see these beautiful projects her students did.

2. You need to join us in celebrating her post below by helping to annotate it and share it. You can join Diigo here  and you can join the #ccourses annotation group here   AND if you don’t want to do either of those you can see what others are doing by clicking on this annotated link.

3. And last and least, but still pretty cool: did you know that you could embed stuff into the the Diigo annotation boxes? I embedded a picture via Flickr, a gif via Giphy, a sound file via Soundcloud, and a zeega inside Diigo text boxes. Diigo ain’t just a text annotation machine anymore! I have only gotten this to work within the Chrome browser so your mileage may vary.  Still being able to put reaction Gifs in the text box is a mongo Happy New Year’s gift for me.  I really don’t know why I hadn’t tried this earlier, but I did today thanks to Sandra’s post.  I just wanted to try to learn just as hard as she tries to teach.

  1. Terry ~ neat about embedding images in annotation boxes. Do you have free or premium Diigo? I’ve capturing images to save with links ~ but I’m not sure that’s the same thing. You can also save images with or without the link, although I don’t use that as often as I might.

    Diigo had an early image feature with the free version, then dropped it, then brought it back. I lose track ~ still have not gotten around to taking a closer look at the new Outliner feature.

    1. I have premium Diigo. You can post links in an annotation box, but what I did with the pix was to use the embed code in Flickr–ditto for all of the other media. I discovered that Giphy has three different kinds of embed! I am writing a blog post right now using the outliner.
