e-Learning News #2 (Issue 6 2016)

This edition of the e-Learning newsletter contains information regarding the new "Save to Google" Chrome extension. This extension gives staff, students and parents who use Gmail, a visual alternative to using bookmarks.
Bookmarks can often be difficult to organise. Have you ever bookmarked a web page and then forgotten that you had bookmarked it or even forgotten why you bookmarked the page in the first place?
As stated on Google's Webstore:
The Save to Google extension can be downloaded by using the following link: Save to Google
The saved pages can then be found at http://www.google.com/save you may like to have this as a tab which automatically opens every time you launch the Chrome browser.
This extension would be a perfect way for all students to organise research for subject specific projects. I can envisage many useful applications of the Save to Google extension particularly for the Year 12 Research Project.
If you would like a more detailed look at the Save to Google extension, consider visiting the Techy Coach's Blog here: Save to Google - Techy Coach Blog
If you have existing bookmarks that you would like to also add to Save to Google they can be automatically imported by following the steps outlined below:
Step 1: Click on the Menu option bars in the top left hand corner of the Google Saves webpage
NOTE: the import process will occur the instance you click on "Import Chrome Bookmarks" and will import ALL of your bookmarks.
