Quick sheet beyond the google box

  1. 1.  What does “Beyond the Google Box” mean?  Beyond the Google Box means there are more ways to obtain research data than just using Google all the time. Try the different technologies below. Google Alerts  http://www.google.com/alerts  Monitoring a developing news story  Keeping current on a competitor or industry  Getting the latest on a celebrity or event  Keeping tabs on your favorite sports teams  Collecting research data RSS Feeds  A web feed is a file that contains frequently updated information, such as news headlines, blog posts, and in the case of podcasts audio and video, that is specially formatted in a way that allows it to be subscribed to using a variety of programs called feed readers or aggregators.  RSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each sites email newsletter.  Feed Reader or News Aggregator software allow you to grab the RSS feeds from various sites and display them for you to read and use.  Google Reader: http://bit.ly/rIn8z7 Social Bookmarking  Similar to web browser bookmarks, social bookmarking stores individual pages online and allows you to tag them. For people who like to frequently bookmark web pages, this can provide an easier way to organize the bookmarks.  Example: http://www.diigo.com/ YouTube.com/EDU  http://www.youtube.com/education  YouTube.com/EDU are lectures from top ranked universities around the globe Blogs ©Beyond the Google Box, Michelle Post, Ph.D.  A blog is a type of website that is usually arranged in chronological order from the most recent „post‟ (or entry) at the top of the main page to the older entries towards the bottom.  A blog is a Web site that functions as a journal, or a diary, or a place to post your thoughts and opinions pertaining to a particular subject matter.  Example listing of blogs for education: http://oedb.org/library/features/top-100- education-blogs  To search for specific blogs use Google‟s Blog Search: http://www.google.com/blogsearch Additional Areas for Researching  Wikis: Best list of Wikis on the Internet - http://wiki.wetpaint.com/page/Wiki+Directory  Podcasts: Search Google with the keywords “podcast directory”  Discussion Groups: Share ideas with other scholars using Google Groups - https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!overview or MIT‟s Open Study - http://openstudy.com/
