    This is an online, community-based course showcasing search techniques and how you can use them to solve real, everyday problems. Dan Russell, a senior research scientist at Google, will cover topics that will help you:
    • Find just what you're looking for, faster
    • Get right to the most credible sources
    • Solve even the most challenging questions
    Ninety-six percent of people who completed the course also said they liked the format and would be interested in taking similar courses, so we plan to offer a suite of upcoming courses in the coming months, including Advanced Power Searching. Since the internet is very vast, it has 99% content which is not needed by 99% of users, hence a power search is the need for the day.

    The community-based course features six 50-minute classes along with interactive activities and the opportunity to hear from search experts and Googlers about how search works. Beginning September 24, you can take the classes over a two-week period, share what you learn with other students in a community forum, and complete the course assessments to earn a certificate of completion.

    The course begins on September 24 and ends on October 10.
