I’ve been experimenting with a new online tool called Edgee that is a different type of platform. Think of a cross between visual bookmarks ala Pinterest and a blog. This overview video below, gives you a good idea of how it works.
I like how easy it is to assemble a page around a topic using text blurbs, links, video and other embeddable content from other places like Slideshare, etc. This works great for curating the best resources around a particulate topic and it has the added benefit of being easy to update. For example, visiting your Edgee page link will always show the most up-to-date content no matter how long after your presentation someone visits.
I have used my recent ATD Techknowledge session on Elearning Portfolio’s as an example to illustrate how it works. [ You can see it here ] I’ve included a brief text intro, my slides and the accompanying handout embedded from Slideshare, links to the articles and tools I want to highlight, and a link to a lot of additional bookmarks on Diigo.
If you’re curious check out this one on “How to build an Edgee” and if you like it let me know — I’d love to see what you’re doing with it!
