Social Media in Medicine Course Week 2: Medical search engines and the Google story

I launched the new semester of the “Social Media in Medicine” course at Semmelweis University with over 150 students. The second week was dedicated to medical search engines and the Google story.

Students find all the presentations, hand-outs and even self-tests on this site. They can also get bonus points for completing challenges that focus on the topics covered in the previous weeks on the Facebook page of the course. You might want to compete with them!

It feels great showing them tricks about online searches, new search engines they didn’t know about and those Google tools they have never used.
