You're reading the 101st Stingy Scholar post. I started this blog to keep track of the best free educational materials available on the web. Unfortunately, this site is getting so large that it's hard to keep track of my own posts.
Del.icio.us should help. Under the username stingyscholar, I bookmarked the URL to each post. Using del.icio.us' tags and improved search capabilities, I hope that you guys will be better able to find useful posts and save them in your del.icio.us accounts.
I tried to pick a discrete number of tags and arrange
them under "bundles" for liberal arts, news, science, and sources. Without describing what every tag means, know that "archive" identifies sites which contains large archive of content (books, audiobooks, videos, etc.) and "courses" identifies sites that offer full courses. You might also find good stuff with the podcasts, video, and tools tags. "Applications" describes both free software and AJAX-powered browser applications.
Try it out. I'm open to suggestions on how to make these tags more user-friendly. Let me know if you have an ideas (stingyscholar at gmail dot com).
Additionally, del.icio.us is a resource for many people who want to find free educational materials, but don't know about Stingy Scholar or Textbook Revolution. Since the goal is to draw attention to these materials, I'm hoping that more people will discover them through these del.icio.us tags. Every Stingy Scholar bookmark is tagged with the tags: stingy, scholar, learning, free, and education. With del.icio.us, users can also save the bookmarks to their own account. They can also create RSS subscriptions for specific tags. For example, perhaps you don't care about science, but you like the posts on books. You can set your feed reader to receive: http://del.icio.us/rss/stingyscholar/books
One final point - I choose to link to my posts rather than the direct site because it seemed more managable, especially since I update posts with many links such as this older one on University Podcasts.
