Could you not use http://del.icio.us/?
For our VLe, which is a self contained unit, I was wanting to create an online links database where I could post links to sites easily, have them tagged and put into different folders/catagories. I can then link to the html page on our platform through an iFrame.
I have not found anything which would let me easily post, manage and sort links. I need something which can be posted onto easily without having to edit html (which is the current way of doing things)
I have used something similar using RUNcms but this requires a mySQL database and I don't really want to pay for one.
Also have: edutagger - K-12 Social Bookmarking / Popular bookmarked, but never used it so no idea if it's any good.
Is there a way of using Del.io.us to have a folder for Literacy, a folder for numeracy and what not?
I'm worried about kids vering away from the links onto something very unsuitable...
What is your VLE? Does it already use a SQL database (Microsoft, MySQL???) Are you any good at PHP/ASP/ASP.Net?
If you can answer "yes" to some of those questions then I'd roll your own - it only needs a couple of db tables (link categories and link details??), a web page to add new links and a page to display them.
If you've got a db and your web site is running ASP or ASP.Net then I could probably put something together for you (I did one ages ago but we then started using something else - I think our OPAC has a facility for this)
The del.ico.us problem is that the children can still get back to their home page which might have something unsuitable on.
Did you look at? edutagger - K-12 Social Bookmarking / Popular ??
The homepage is primarily text based and if the kids were to click any unsuitable links then your web filtering should pick up on it.The del.ico.us problem is that the children can still get back to their home page which might have something unsuitable on.
You could host your own PHP based system.
