scrible | smarter online research - annotate, organize & collaborate on web pages

scrible | smarter online research - annotate, organize & collaborate on web pages | K12, HE, NGOs, Non-Profits: INFORMATION LITERACY | Scoop.it

Even though the world uses the Internet to research nearly everything for work, school and home (job postings, press releases, Wikipedia articles, medical info, etc.), most folks still use old-school ways of annotating, organizing and sharing online info (printing to mark by hand, copying/pasting into Word, etc.). It's archaic, laborious and a waste of time. We're changing that. We're bringing Web-based research into the Internet Era by empowering people to mark up web pages in the browser and manage and collaborate on them online. And that's just the start... We've got much more planned in a variety of areas to help people manage the mounds of info they're pulling off the Web everyday.
