IMPORTANCE OF SHARED BOOKMARK IN A CLASSROOM OR ONLINE LEARNING
You discover an article while conducting research and distribute it to your students using Microsoft Teams. The chats are unending, and the link you send is lost in the shuffle. During assignments, students are unable to locate the article and are therefore helpless. Microsoft 365 for Education assists students in this subject by allowing them to save the URL for themselves. However, what if there was a bookmark manager that enabled you to keep the URL while also sharing it with your students and colleagues?
ABILITY TO SHARE PICTURES, VIDEOS, LINKS & TEXTS!
Not only do bookmarking managers facilitate the sharing of links, but also of images, videos, emails, and texts. Plugins available in Microsoft 365 Education for MS Teams, MS Word, Chrome, and Outlook enable you to save, share, and send bookmarks in the web app with other Teams and project participants. This enables students and teachers to save images and videos pertaining to a specific subject into a subject folder and manage them during assignments.
GREATER PRODUCTIVITY AND EFFICIENT TIME MANAGEMENT
During assignments, searching for links and articles can take a significant amount of time if the resources are not organized. While bookmark managers assist in organizing them according to folders, categories, and tags, using bookmarking solutions reduces the amount of time spent searching and looking for links, allowing you to devote that time to learning.
A COMMON POOL OF RESOURCES
The cloud-based platform collects and organizes shared links and resources via folders, categories, tags, and subject names. Links, in particular, can be stored for an entire semester, ensuring that the following batch of students begins the semester with access to those links and resources. These saved resources compile a collection of articles and links that are easily accessible to students and teachers studying the subject.
SUPPORTIVE CLASSROOMS AND EXPRESSIVE LEARNERS
Transparency of resources helps to increase the participation of students and teachers on a daily basis with the conversations, classes, and announcements. That empowers the supportiveness between students and teachers, which will assist them to be vocal about a given issue and brainstorm with essential resources.
SAVE BROWSER SESSIONS AND GET ORGANIZED
Researching might result in a plethora of tabs open on a browser, and returning to them to search through each tab can be laborious. On the other hand, bookmarking managers assist in saving all open tabs as a browser session and categorizing them according to the study topic. Students can benefit from back and forth access via the web app and save time on assignments by doing so. Saving browser sessions enable you to preserve the value of your one-time research.
