Creating a Del.icio.us account

If you go to Del.icio.us, you can sign up for an account. Choose your username well, especially if you will be telling students your account. It might be helpful to make your username similar to your district login or a login that you use for other student related activities.

Setting up your browsers

Del.icio.us makes saving and sharing your bookmarks quite easy; however, it takes a little bit to customize your browser. Once your browser is customized, you can tag any site that you can open. See how to customize your browser by installing buttons, click here
1. Saving your favorite bookmarks
  • Browse to your favorite sites
  • Click the Tag or Post to Del.icio.us buttons
  • Complete the site information form.
  • With your website now tagged, others can access it from your account by typing in the tag name following your account name, or they can search all of del.icio.us to see what other sites are also tagged with the same tag.
