Welcome to another week of Webby Wednesday! This week I'd like to introduce you to a helpful tool for grouping websites for students. Enter...fur.ly!
To get to the Furly site simply type the site address as fur.ly. Once on the site you will find a place where you can type or paste in multiple web addresses (enter one address and you will see a place for an additional address). Furly then takes those addresses and creates one URL for all of those sites. To see Furly in action visit the following link http://fur.ly/kkw (you will find multiple websites that all have educational video resources). At the top of the Furly created web address there will be a menu bar that allows users to browse through the various sites that were entered into Furly (see example below).
With the toolbar users can then page through the websites with the arrows, or click the drop down menu and select a different site in the list to view.
Teachers can stipulate the websites that they would like students to use by directing students to one fur.lyaddress rather than trying to list out multiple sites for the students to enter on their own.
