Create a custom search engine

Interested in developing your students research skills but having control over the content they access. You cab create a custom Google search which only searches sites you specify. This cab be linked off your faculty site and allow students to search more effectively for your subject or course.

This would be most relevant for project work where students will search for images and information. You can ensure they only get results from sites you know and trust by providing them with a link to your custom search or by embedding it into your own site.

Here is one I created for A-level maths that only searches a few sites I know and trust. It therefore avoids the students using sites from other countries that I have not been able to look at myself to ensure the explanations are correct and similar to the skills we share in class.

You can also access the same search by clicking on this link
