Following up on our earlier post this week on free and open educational resources on the web, there's even better news to report. As of yesterday, the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is now live. More than three years in the making, the library brings together the collections of museums, universities, public libraries and other institutions around the USA in one central and accessible place. There are millions of items to discover, from books and manuscripts to movies, photographs and sound recordings.
On the other side of the (virtual) Atlantic, Europeana is the DPLA's continental counterpart. It also offers a cultural treasure trove that's free to explore, from Europe's leading galleries, archives and libraries. It also has a blog, and even its own Pinterest feed.

Most of us are well acquainted with the fun and entertaining parts of the internet. But did you know about MOOCs and other types of open educational resources available on the web?
Last month, the second annual Open Education Week was held, showcasing the many free and open educational resources available to anyone who can get online.
From the School of Open to the Khan Academy, Coursera to open resources from the Internet Archive, you can take courses in math, web design - even the Norwegian language!
Have you participated in any open educational courses before, either as a student or teacher? What do you think?

More and more of what we do online these days involves images. Whether we're just browsing through Tumblr or Flickr, checking out creative portfolios on Dribbble or behance, or getting our daily dose of inspiration from Uncrate, The Cool Hunter or The Sartorialist, it's easy to lose track of the photos we like the most.
Enter the Photo Tagger extension in Opera. If you're using Opera on a computer, this add-on will collect the images from around the web you mark as your favorites, and add them to a gallery that appears in your Speed Dial.
From there, you can simply enjoy looking at your pictures, or share them to Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, or Vkontakte.
