Netvibes is a multi-lingual Ajax-based personalized start page or personal web portal much like Pageflakes, My Yahoo!, iGoogle, and Microsoft Live. It is organized into tabs, with each tab containing user-defined modules.


For an individual, it’s the equivalent of you being 24/7 in front of your Dashboard and making all decisions the way you always do. Netvibes, with today’s release of the latest version of its personalized start page service, Ginger, thinks it finally sees a way to revenue. GigaOM has been given 100 beta invites, just visit the Ginger start page. And it turns out that maybe I’ll be able to do it this week, when the company will launch a first beta of their iPad optimized website. This is the beginnings of what will shortly become an amazing resource for you and your students (and anyone else who happens across it!). If you’re unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact Netvibes and ask personally. Make sure you’re signed in, and follow the direct link provided below. Make sure you can check your email and that you click on the Confirmation link. You can now add this to your blog as a menu item or sidebar link so that you and students can always get to it as one click away from your main learning platform. From an educational standpoint, the ability to create rich feeds and then put them only a link away from learners is critical. Number 2 shows the first (of what can become many) tabs that will contain rich resources. Number 3 shows that you can add more tabs (on different topics? types of resources? etc.) whenever you like.

Number 1 below shows the public URL of this page. I’m going to suggest that you immediately begin working – not on this default private page, but – on your public page. The three-year-old company, which has offices in Paris, London and San Francisco, aims to begin monetizing its technology through a widget advertising platform, and through the creation of customizable web pages for media companies. Use either a Facebook account or start a new Netvibes one to begin. Import external files or connect third-party datasets to the Dashboard to analyze everything in one place. If you signed up for Netvibes using a third-party login such as Facebook or Twitter, you probably want to revoke all access from Netvibes. Netvibes automatically analyzes a wealth of data-from across the internet or inside your organization-to answer your questions using critical insights and real-time intelligence. More than a monitoring tool, Netvibes empowers users to act by independently exploring data, asking questions and discovering key insights. You can also add them to the web sites that you manage and offer your users. Ginger allows a user to place widgets, feeds and even information from their social network of choice onto a web page that can be used as a home page. That’s why Netvibes user Nathan wrote a Greasemonkey script that hides his most distracting tabs during the day, making them visible for only an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening. Why do you need a Feeds page? Additionally, premium features are available for those who are willing or for some reason need extra features and functionality.
