With respect to the increasing trend that students acquire information from the Internet for their formal or informal learning, we aim at analyzing the use of social bookmarking to help students collaboratively access useful and creditable Web resources, facilitating collaborative learning. We also investigate the use of social bookmarking for after-school learning. Social bookmarking allows users to search for, tag, and share Web resources, and hence recommend students Web resources that are potentially useful and relevant. Experiments were conducted to study how social bookmarking can improve the quality of the acquired Web resource. In particular, students using social bookmarking could acquire a more focused and high quality set of Web resources compared with students not using social bookmarking.
