e-Learning News #2 (Issue 6 2016)

Written on the 12 May 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:

  • Easily save interesting webpages to Google with the new Save to Google extension.
  • One-click save: Click the star to save webpages for later viewing. Easily navigate your saves via an intuitive visual UI. 
  • One spot for webpages and Images: your saved webpages and saved images from Google Image Search will live together at google.com/save.
  • Organise your images: Add Tags to organise your saved webpages and images.

The Save to Google extension can be downloaded by using the following link: Save to Google
This extension enables you to organise your webpages by tagging them at the time of saving. An example is shown below:

 

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


Step 2: Select the Import Chrome Bookmarks options from the menu which appears

NOTE: the import process will occur the instance you click on "Import Chrome Bookmarks" and will import ALL of your bookmarks.

Happy browsing
