Week 5 – Bookmarking (part 1)

Bookmarking your favourite websites is probably familiar to you.

Just to refresh you memory…

Thing 8 - Browser based bookmarks

Find a website you like or find useful, and then…..
  • Using Internet Explorer
    • click the green plus/gold star button to “add to favourites”
    • Name the favourite in a way that makes sense to you.
    • Click add.
    • To view the feed to check if there are any new items for you to read, click the gold star button, and pick the “favourites” column; alternatively, click “favourites” in the top menu bar.
    • You have the chance to organise your favourites into folders if you want to. Click “favourites” in the top menu bar, and click “organise your favourites”
  • OR
  • Using Firefox,
    • Click the star in the address bar, this automatically adds it to your list of Bookmarks (notice it changes from clear to gold)
    • Click the star again, and you’re given the chance to name the bookmark in a way that makes sense to you, and to put it in a particular folder (depending on the way you’ve organised your bookmarks)
    • You also get the chance to tag the bookmark.
    • Click done or “remove this bookmark” as appropriate.
    • To view your bookmarks, click “bookmarks” and chose “recently bookmarked”
Take a screenshot of your list of favourites/bookmarks, and load it into your blog. Label it “Thing 8”
