Bookmarking in Plain English

To Create a Delicious account

1. Go to
2. Click on the Register button.
3. Complete the registration form.
4. When the account registration is completed a new window will appear. In this window, click the Install Button Now link. This program will install the buttons that make using your Delicious account easy.

What are the advantages of using delicious?
1. Your favorites are accessible from any computer, anywhere with an internet connection. No need to keep one set of favorites at home, and another on your computer at school.

2. No need to e-mail your favorites to yourself from one location to another, or email friends good links. Just put your friends in your network, and they can see your favorites. You can also “tag” sites for them to look at when they check their accounts. You can import all your favorites from Internet Explorer so that you can see them anytime, anywhere, from any computer by logging into Delicious.

3. Your favorites become easy to find because you can tag them with a number of different tags. You don’t have to “remember” how you listed a site you need for lesson planning or personal use.

4. When you add people to your network, and they add you to theirs, you are building a community bank of resources you can use when planning lessons or to get more information on a topic.

5. Delicious suggests tags for each of your favorites as you are tagging them. These tags often act as leads you can follow to dig deeper into a topic and gather information.

6. Following the tags of others helps keep you current with what sites people are reading and using.

7. Teachers can easily and simply share internet sites with students at multiple computers.

Imagine the possibilities!
