Week 4 Post

This weeks assignment explored many different tools we can use online. An article that I previously bookmarked pertaining my major was full of a lot of information, but there were only certain points that I wanted to highlight. Using the Diigo toolbar I was able to highlight those important parts. I was also able to add sticky notes, and annotations. These annotations will come in handy when studying for an exam or writing a paper. We also explored BitLy. BitLy is a tool we can use to shorten URLs so they aren’t crazy long. I did a test run in BitLy with my YouTube account.  It shortened the URL down to six letters instead of 20 jumbled numbers and letters. BitLy makes it easier for you to remember your URL. BitLy is an awesome tool and will definitely come in handy in the future.
