Today’s Google class participants learned from Stephanie Madlinger the advanced search techniques, they developed a Custom Search Engine, and they discovered easier ways to find images, resources and websites while using Google. The class developed an online calendar to access anytime, anywhere. Participants were introduced to Google search features like Realtime Search, plus learn how to make the most of Google Books and YouTube in the classroom. They also had the chance to created an RSS feed. This class, Google Tools for Educators, is offered again March 28 & 29, each night from 4-7 p.m.; the cost is $149 for a CSD member; $189 for a non-member. There is 1 graduate credit available from Lindenwood University for those who opt to participate.
Also in March, we are offering Online Classroom Collaboration with Google Docs. This class takes place March 30, from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.; it has the same costs and graduate credit options available as the Google Tools for Educators. Here’s more on the Google Docs class: Did you know that you could use the basic abilities of Word, PowerPoint, and Excel in an online collaborative environment?
