LiveBinders

A new online resource I’ve been looking at recently is LiveBinders. Straight off the bat I’d have to say I like it, and can see a lot of potential for the busy web-savvy techie teacher, and the technophobes amongst us.

Look & Feel

It sort of “feels like” a wiki, a Research Guide (LibGuides), and an old fashioned three-ring binder with tabs rolled into one. Once you’ve added a LiveBinders bookmarklet to your browser you’re good to go. If you have a Delicious or Pinterest account collecting and saving webpages will feel very familiar.

Features

Some of the nice features of LiveBinders are:

  • you can drag binders to the desktop for a laptop presentation
  • they’re easy to update and organize
  • you can use them with a SmartBoard
  • and apparently, a binder can be embedded into a blog!
