Infographic: How Google has changed what it means to do research


With almost 30 percent of the human population, or 2 billion people, using the internet; and 94 percent of US students equating research with using Google or other search engines, it comes as no surprise that 75 percent of students use Wikipedia and online encyclopedias for research.

Favorite browser and search engine : I use Safari and Google, by default. Of course, I keep Chrome and Firefox around for when something doesn’t work (e.g. I use Google Maps for navigation.

Usability and Networks

Clark Quinn

As I mentioned in an earlier post , I have been using Safari and Google to traverse the networks. And in a comment, I mentioned that the recent launch of the new Firefox browser was prompting me to switch. The rationale for the switch is that I don’t completely trust Google and Apple with my data. I had used Safari over Chrome because I trust Apple a wee bit more, and Firefox was a bit slow.

Google releases open source browser

Jay Cross

The online learner’s favorite tool of all time, Firefox, will never look the same. Google just brought out an open source browser. Google Chrome leverages Google’s knowledge of page popularity, mal sights, pfishers, and so on, but the new browser sounds like it breaks new ground in flexibility, speed, and robustness. Google enlisted the wonderful Scott McCloud to pen a elaborate cartoon that digs into the details. Hear that?

Mobile Learning and Interactivity

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

Firefox doesn’t support H.264 format, while Safari will only support that, and Google introduced the new WebM standard but supports both WebM and H.264 formats. Does mobile learning need interactivity? Even more so, says Janhavi Padture, one of the invited speakers at Washington Interactive Technologies Conference, hosted by SALT (Society of Applied Learning Technologies). I talked to her to get her take on the subject. Mobile content is short-duration, small-screen.

Online multimedia content in e-learning: Flash vs. HTML5


Lastly, as of June 30 this year, Google AdWords will no longer support Flash in their ads. It has plenty of limitations, like the need for external JavaScript of CSS files for animations and video, or the fact that it doesn't run well on all browsers: Firefox, Safari and IE lower than 10 have poor or no support for it. The traditional way of training is based on the didactic method of a teacher/professor/instructor pushing new information/knowledge onto learners/trainees' brains.

I've looked at various tools to use as part of this, but I'm finding that what I really want is a better Copy-to-Clipboard function (in Firefox) that would include a citation to the original source as part of the copy operation. Also, I've been evaluating various clipping, note taking tools such as Zotero, Clipmarks, Google Notebook and my frank opinion is that it forces me to use an interface that is limited as compared to putting it into a large document to play with.
