Google search for government

Boost eLearning said it will offer training in Google search techniques for government, nonprofit groups and other organizations.

The training is based on a hosted application that expands the range of search skills that information workers need to make the most of the Web, Boost officials said.

Boost eLearning Google Search Training shows how to exclude ads, pinpoint geographic areas and extract certain file types. It also teaches users how to find e-mail addresses, words in a particular order and search within designated timeframes.

Geared toward adult learners, the eLearning training is made up of 20 lessons, all less than 15 minutes in length.

'The Google search engine is one of the most powerful and ubiquitous business tools in today's marketplace, yet only a fraction of today's workforce fully utilizes its functionality,' said Victor Alhadeff, chief executive officer of Boost eLearning. 'Adding to this issue is the fact that many training directors are simply unaware of the limitless potential of Google in the workplace. Our new training software is designed to help workers of all skill sets tap the vast and accurate query capabilities of Google search.'

A free trial of Boost eLearning Google Search Training is available here.
