Using Del.icio.us as your presentation leave-behind

Del.icio.us makes a great leave-behindHad the opportunity to guest lecture at a class in George Washington University’s School of Public Health on Monday. The students were great, asked a lot of questions, and were generally a pleasure to be around. I tried something different this time for a leave-behind. Since the preso covered resources these future communicators could use that cost nearly nothing or nothing at all in hard costs, there were several links I would usually stick on the slides or in a document. Instead, this time I used Del.icio.us with the tag “GWU” and passed on providing a list of links nobody can copy down in time anyway. For an audience with a wide range of familiarity with these tools this method not only puts the info somewhere they can get it later easily, but also has them using one of the tools in the process. Again, I don’t think I’m the first (or even close) to do this but I’m definitely going this route in the future.
