Searching today for articles about collaborative teaching philosophies (don’t ask) – I saw this new little icon on the Google Scholar results – how long has this been here?
I clicked it, thinking it would give me the chance to email results to myself (which is something my students sometimes ask for, though not nearly as often as they ask why Google Scholar won’t format their citations for them). But instead, it’s a chance to set up an alert for this search.
I don’t actually know that I’ll use this because I don’t really want anything else coming to my email — an RSS feed would be nice. But has this been around for months and I’ve just noticed it? That could definitely be true – we’ll see how it works.
