Feedly: organize, read and share what matters to you.
John Dalziel's insight:
Feedly has recently added some new interesting features to improve the way users save, read and share web content. 
With these new features, users will be able to create boards, highlight salient part of stories, and add notes. 
Users are in control of... 
  - which publications they follow,
  - which blogs they follow,
  - which YouTube Channels they follow,
  - which Google Keyword Alerts they monitor,
  - which sources they turn into easy-to-read feeds and
  - which content from their organisation's internal portals, content management systems, and SaaS applications they access securely. 
All that content can be organised into easy to read collections and, if required, shared via Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, email and more. 
Such posts can be scheduled with Hootsuite or Buffer. 
Ideal for Subject centred collaboration where Educational Practitioners can curate, comment and prioritise the best articles/resources/etc., about specific topics and ideas. 
Must be worth a closer look.

lumio - highlight what matters; an excellent Chrome Extension to use for bookmarking, curating, and clipping web content

lumio - highlight what matters; an excellent Chrome Extension to use for bookmarking, curating, and clipping web content | technologies |
Break up with bookmarks, fall in love with lumio. Highlight text, data or images, organize your research, enhance your productivity!
John Dalziel's insight:
Lumio is an excellent Chrome Extension to use for bookmarking, curating, and clipping web content. 
Learners can use it to highlight interesting content in a webpage, add notes to it and save it for a later access. 
Highlights are recorded together with source information so learners can easily check back and cite source pages. 
Additionally, Lumio provides users with internal search functionality that allows them to quickly search through and locate saved content. 
Users can organise their highlights into collections and rearrange them the way they want. 
However, users do need to sign up to Lumio to be able to benefit from all of its features including storing data on the cloud and accessing it from different devices. 
Another cool feature is the ability to access and read their saved content using Lumio’s built-in reader with a distraction free reading view. 
Users can also easily channel their highlights to other apps such as Slack or Trello or share them with others through email or social media.

cc:to me

cc:to me | technologies |

CC:to me is one of those bookmarklets that "makes my head hurt"; there are so many things practitioners and their learners can do with it.


Why wasn't an idea as simple as this implemented earlier.


As its name suggests, it allows users to...
- email stuff to themself via a bookmarklet;
- drag and drop text, images, videos and more from the web onto it;


cc:to me then emails them all flawlessly along with the link.


Currently free (sign up needed); pro accounts (coming soon) will bring goodies like multiple recipients (ideal for collaborative work) and more.
