Recently, something called Symbaloo caught my eye as I was searching online. Essentially, it is a webmix portal that aggregates online content into 1 common webspace that is visually appealing and easy to use. Some people will call it a grid of bookmarks. As a user, you are able to create customizable tiles linking to URLs of online resources. The drag and drop feature allows you to drag the tiles around while categorising content.

Currently I'm trying to create a webmix for English based on the 4 prime skills of Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking, Grammar and Vocabulary. They will be placed along the 4 corners of the Webmix Grid. Once it is ready, I will post it here.

If you are interested to find out more about SymbalooEdu, the Personal Learning Environment (PLE) from an academic's perspective, you can read a review from Christopher Harwood, Centre for English Language Communication, National University of Singapore.
