Recommended Website of the month - Speedtile

 Posted by Andy

There is absolutely no shortage of innovative online bookmarking tools out there, obviously the established big players are Delicious and Diigo, but more recently there has been a move towards visual bookmarking tools. we've already seen the wonderful Pearltrees which creates wonderful tree structures of favourite websites, and can be best used as a teaching or learning resource. 
Another great tool is Speedtile, which takes all of your favourites and places them with small screen shots in a tile formation on your browser. It's very quick to use, and looks really good. You can create shared collections and place content over several tabs. The only downside is that it does not recognise certain Website extensions such as.pdf. Nevertheless it is well worth the visit.

If you want to see it in actioon have a look at the one I created for a course we ran in Switzerland last month.
