Exclusive SearchResearch news flash!
The PowerSearchingWithGoogle online class is moving to the edX platform!
If you're a Regular Reader of SearchResearch, this is a course you might have already taken. But for teachers and people who want a recommendation about where can I learn all this stuff, here's an opportunity to get a quick dose of what it means to be a skilled online researcher.
I've wanted to make this shift for a while--the old platform was growing increasingly difficult to maintain. So when the edX folks offered to host PowerSearchingWithGoogle, I was extraordinarily pleased. They'll keep the boilers fired up and at the correct pressure, fixing little things as they go haywire from time to time.
The course is an updated version of the old course (hurrah!), and comes in two flavors.
(A) FREE: You can audit the course for free and get all of the experiences and lessons that I've created.
(B) Certificate: You can pay some amount of money and take the course for a certificate. Bear in mind that it's a certificate from edX saying that you've passed all of the tests given in the course. It doesn't have any additional credential than that--but if that's what you want, it's an option for you.
There will be an official announcement from edX and Google coming later this week--but I wanted you to have the insider knowledge that comes with being a SearchResearch reader.
To get to the new edX course:

Note that you need to create a (free!) edX account beforehand. Then you just register for the course and start enjoying.
Of course, if you find any bugs, let me know and I'll fix them!
