Google's Power Searching Course Now Available Online

A previous tip was about an online offering of classes by Google on how to be a better searcher. Those classes were at specified times. The classes are now available online for viewing at your leisure. The Google link is here.  There are six 50-minute classes, free for anybody to try. 

{Added later: The link above no longer works. As noted in the comments, you can get to the classes from a new Google offering described here..}

Take a look at the lessons. You’ll be pleased at how much easier it is to find what you’re looking for once you learn a few tricks.
