Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) will be moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. After the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details will be sent to registered users of the LOR. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Description: 

Diigo is a tool that allows users a safe place to search for, bookmark, organize, annotate, collaborate on and share online resources.

What We Like: 
  • Customization options

  • Gives teachers a way to share relevant, pre-screened website content
  • Ability to add notes to reinforce lessons in the text
Limitations: 
  • Requires login
  • Must stay within the browser tab to use it
  • Advanced searches can turn up questionable content
  • Not much guidance on research practices or identifying credible sources
Classroom Application: 
Use as a classroom 'home page' to share links with students easily (they don't have to type them in)
