I was exposed to this resource as a student, in the class where WebQuests are
taught.
Since, then I've pointed faculty and students to it because I notice most
conduct searches inefficiently. Even pointing out the advantages of using Google
advanced search, which I always now use, usually results in smiling faces.
This tutorial is valuable to any situation that asks learners to search the Net.
Learners who've mastered what has become a basic ICT skill, have more time and
cognitive resources to attend to the task as hand.
