“Compendium” Is A New Cool New York Times Tool


Compendium is a new cool tool from The New York Times that lets you:

Create collections of articles, quotes, images, and videos from The New York Times. Annotate the items you’ve collected to tell a story. Share your collections with the world!

It’s like a quasi-Pinterest or Storify, but somehow cooler.

It could be useful to teachers at home. Unfortunately, you can only sign-in through Facebook or Twitter (no email registration) and you can only add resources to your collections through using a bookmarklet (not just by copying and pasting). So those limitations make school use problematic.

But it certainly is a nice experiment.

Thanks to Holly Epstein Ojalvo for the tip.
