Power Searching with Google: A Free Online Course

Google has launched ” Power Searching with Google”,  a free, online, community-based course that enables you to empower search techniques and how to use them to solve real, everyday problems.

Google for Students says, ” Our course is aimed at empowering you to find what you need faster, no matter how you currently use search. For example, did you know that you can search for and read pages written in languages you’ve never even studied? Identify the location of a picture your friend took during his vacation a few months ago? How about finally identifying that green-covered book about gardening that you’ve been trying to track down for years? You can learn all this and more over six 50-minute classes.

The course  features:

  • Six 50-minute classes.
  • Interactive activities to practice new skills.
  • Opportunities to connect with others using Google Groups, Google+, and Hangouts on Air.
  • Upon passing the post-course assessment, a printable Certificate of Completion will be emailed to you.

Course  will commence on July 10, 2012 and will end on July 19, 2012.  If you are interested, you  can take them according to your own schedule during a two-week window, alongside a worldwide community.

The lessons include interactive activities to practice new skills, and many opportunities to connect with others using Google tools such as Google Groups, Moderator and Google+, including Hangouts on Air, where world-renowned search experts will answer your questions on how search works.

Power Searching with Google blends the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) learning format pioneered by Stanford and MIT with our social and communication tools to create what we hope is a true community learning experience.

Registration for the course began from June 26, 2012. So, don’t waste your time looking around. Sign up now!
