WebList: a pathfinder and presentation option

I’ve been playing around a bit with WebList and it looks like a promising, and super-easy, pathfinder alternative.  Here’s my first creation for Copyright-Friendly Images.

weblist WebList: a pathfinder and presentation option

I can see this as a very handy option for presentations, as well.

Gather a list of URLs around a particular topic or need, and WebList automatically creates a thumbnail directory with a unique URL.

Once you have created your list you can save it as a smart bookmark or as a customizable home page, share it with friends via email or through the top social media networks, and post it on your blog.

Weblist is a great place to discover new user edited content across the web. Find lists in any subject from musical playlists to lists of informative scientific articles and anything in between.

Weblist is a free service and registration is optional. If you choose to register as a user your entire list will be saved under your account and you will be able to edit, delete and add to your lists.

Coming soon: Firefox add-on, user voting list, site widgets, and more.. stay tuned.

You may also want to make use of some of the already prepared lists.  For instance:

Note: Not all lists are child-friendly.  I wonder if they’d consider a Category for sites relating to education.

    I have recently discovered this tool as well and have begun using it with teachers and students. In one case we are working on a list created by the students after they find some relevant web sites for their assignment topic. They will evaluate the sites and create a resource for future students. they are keen to have a go at this.

    I just wish we could reorder those lists once we get them posted! Anyone know how to do it?
