Access more knowledge

With the recent list of the world's top five brands revealing elearning to be a big benefactor from the work of those companies, I thought it worth mentioning this post on how to get the most out of Google, arguably the most important of the list to our subject.

Google never ceases to amaze me. I'm happy to admit I am one of the dozy users who just splats three words associated with my subject of research and goes with it. At least I usually make a point of jumping about four pages in to the list, but I'm hardly sophisticated. Actually, I'm still buzzing over the fact you can type calculations straight in to the search bar, or type "define" before a word to get a definition of it.

It's a global player that it is genuinely hard not to like - all the others, the Microsofts, Walmarts, Fords, BPs, BAs, the list goes on; these guys can from time to time leave a sour taste in the mouth, and though the whole "agreement with the Chinese authorities" thing may not be their finest hour, Google still shine.
