Google Labs

It is interesting to look at Google Labs, and see which of the “graduates” we use a lot: e.g. Google Scholar, NewsAlerts, and even Google Maps came from the lab. Also, some of the new features that we have learned about during this Learning 2.0 exercise (e.g. Google Documents) are also from the lab.

Even though I don’t want to start a web page at the moment, I checked out Google’s tool: Google Page Creator, and found that it would be quite easy for someone to use it to set up a web page. I also played around with the map feature that allows you to set up maps and keep various sites as default places that you always want to start from.

Google is truly amazing!

    I’m constantly amazed at how Google continuously pumps out new stuff to test and try. Obviously it works, so I’m sure it will continue. Good for us.
