If you missed the recent yolink search technology presentation on Classroom 2.0 LIVE! you may now listen to the archived session. The Saturday, August 7 presentation featuring Brian Cheek from TigerLogic and noted California-based educator, Ken Shelton, was well attended with many interested educators. Brian demonstrated the benefits of yolink as a valuable tool in education and Ken illustrated how he uses yolink to help teach research skills to his students. Brian also introduced the yolink API technology, which when implemented allows website visitors to use yolink to search, save, and share without downloading any software. One great example of our API widget is on the student search engine, SweetSearch, which provides qualified links for K-12 education that have been evaluated by research experts. Mark Moran from SweetSearch surprised attendees by joining the call and describing how the search engine with embedded yolink technology into the site side bar creates an even better research experience.
Other API examples Brian touched on were the Google Alerts feature from our yolink Labs section and Steve Hargadon’s blog. Here is more information on both the yolink API and the Classroom 2.0 LIVE! Saturday presentations.
