  1. I choose to do the Google Search Tips and Tricks lesson and also the lesson Clean up and Organize my Gmail. Both were very informative. Google was a bit easier since I use that everyday with patrons however refining the search terms to do a more in depth search to find what the patron is needing will help and also specialized siste search will help when helping a patron. I am happy that I found time to clean up my Gmail as it has needed it since I started using Gmail. Lots of neat tricks in that lesson such as color coding your files.

  2. I also chose the Google Search Tips and Tricks. The quotes, minus, and asterisk will be helpful in narrowing down searches. I wasn’t aware of the advanced search until this lesson. The older newspaper articles will also be helpful when searching geneology. But, for some reason I couldn’t get short videos to run. And, I’m not sure what I might have done wrong at the end, but it looked like I didn’t get any points in the timed practice search. Also, I don’t play computer games so the games on Google didn’t interest me.

  3. I chose the alternate lesson Learn More About Facebook. I have been curious as to how to stop all the email notices I get about some message or response from a friend on Facebook. It bogs down my email and I really don’t like having to delete all of them. I hope I have marked the right setting to stop most of them. I also changed the setting that allows my information to be found through the Facebook page of my friends. I didn’t even know this was possible until I did this lesson.

  4. I choose to do Google Photos simply because I already have it on my phone! I actually had a neighbor help me one time with storage issues and he put the Google Photos app on my phone but I’ve never looked into it! I love how I can store the photos on my drive and delete them off my phone so they aren’t taking up space! I also like being able to move them around and create my own albums. I’m looking forward to sharing them as well!
