Organizing all of the Tools We're Using

My students often ask for a tool that helps them organize all of the new social media tools they are experimenting with. They want to be able to go to ONE place to look at all of their information (blogs, Twitter, FB, etc.). I don't blame them.....I'm looking for the same thing. Now that Google Reader is gone, I've tried Feedly . It does a nice job of "holding" all of my RSS feeds. However, I want something that can serve multiple purposes. Today, I tried Netvibes and I think I like it. I like that I can have separate tabs - one for each class I'm teaching and one private tab for my own use. Here is what my tab for EDUC775 looks like: EDUC775 Netvibes Feed. Next time I teach the course, I will add all of the students' blogs so that they are all in one spot. I'd like to also see if I can integrate this feed into our class wikispace.  Monday....I'll let you know if it works.
