Here's a feature request... I want a way to save all these great resources I'm finding on EdEx. How about an engine like Pinterest where I can pin these great resources somewhere. Or a bucket I can throw them in. Or a box. Whatever metaphor you want. Right now, I'm bookmarking them into my browser - which is a mess.  So much good stuff!!

Is there a way to invite a colleague to join EdEx straight out of EdEx? I mean, other than telling to go edex.adobe.com and sign up. Is there a referral link sort of thing? I have not come upon that yet in my explorations.
