Google is offering three new services to educators:
1) The University Research Program for Google Search,” is designed to give university researchers “high-volume programmatic access to Google Search, whose huge repository of data constitutes a valuable resource for understanding the structure and contents of the Web.” More at Google Univ Research Program
2) Google Translate, will allow researchers “programmatic access to Google’s translation service,” including “detailed word alignment information” and “a list of the n-best translations with detailed scoring information.”
3) One to definitely keep an eye on, is Google’s leap into the fray of keeping CS students and interested others current with the ‘how-tos’ of new technologies. They have put together a website with tutorials, samples, and video lectures. Current topics include AJAX programming and Distributed Systems. Also included is the Google Curriculum Search that “will help you find teaching materials that have been published to the web by faculty from CS departments around the world. You can refine your search to display just lectures, assignments or reference materials for a set of courses.”
