Comments on Diigo in 2021

“I continue to use a private Diigo group in my Masters class to collectively gather material for students to use in writing papers on attention, memory and thinking aspects of edtech.  It also forms my electronic brain, holding years worth of tagging (since 2012).” Britt Watwood, Academic, Canada

“knowledge compendium, easy to group by topics, tagging is an asset when retrieving information” Director Knowledge Management, Austria

“Diigo is where I bookmark links and make notes. Reading a lot is great, but I also need a way to find sources again when I need them. When I read something interesting, I bookmark it so it’s easy to find and refer to later when I need it. Diigo is how I collect links for my bookmarks posts.” Christy Tucker, USA
