  • Categorising: resources for each topic need to be tagged. For example, material about learning design would be tagged with GDTEOP (for the programme) and learning design (for the topic).
  • Individual accounts: you may also like to set up an individual delicious account to compile material for yourself, sharing only material on the class account that you believe is relevant.
  • Sharing material: to share websites and online articles:
  • login to GDTEOP;
  • Click Add link;
  • Add tags - GDTEOP + name of topic.
  • Outline why the resource is relevant and useful for the topic.
