I have had many people ask for different shortcuts to be added to the student desktop. We have found now that adding more to the desktop will inevitable cause more confusion by cluttering the desktop. After much thought and quite a bit of research I found a product I think may make things a little bit simpler.
The product is called Diigo. Diigo is a cloud based or online bookmark sharing site similar to Delicious and other online bookmark sites. The primary benefit to Diigo was that users didn’t have to be logged in to see the shortcuts we created.
I would encourage all who bring their students into the labs to check out the short instruction video below to see how it works.
You can access the PEM Student Links page by clicking this link: http://www.diigo.com/user/pemhelpdesk or click the new PEM Student Links icon on the student desktop in one of the labs.
