Note taking for students

Just a quick blog to note a couple of articles on effective note taking for students from [lifehack.org](http://lifehack.org):
– [Taking notes that work](http://www.lifehack.org/articles/productivity/advice-for-students-taking-notes-that-work.html)
– [Using a wiki for note taking.](http://www.lifehack.org/articles/technology/advice-for-students-use-a-wiki-for-better-note-taking.html)

Creating a custom search engine in Google

I was at a “lunch and learn” session on Monday talking about Personalized Learning Environments and someone asked a question about custom searches for research and RSS feeds. I just found this [article](http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2007/09/06/creating-google-custom-search-engines.html) cited in [Lifehacker](http://lifehacker.com/software/google/step-by-step-guide-to-making-a-custom-search-engine-297785.php) which may answer those questions.
