Google Search Online Course

This morning I learned about an upcoming event through a Google education group. I just registered for the event and encourage you to do the same if you are interested in learning how to use Google to more effectively connect with information and people.
Hi Search Educators, 
In case you have not yet heard, Google Search Education is holding our first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) from July 10-July 19. Lessons will be released daily starting on July 10, 2012, and 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 the Search Education team will answer your questions on how search works. Googlers will also be on hand during the course period to help and answer your questions in case you get stuck.

Hope to see you there!
