Things 1 – 4: iGoogle and Blogging

Set up your Google ID

I had already set up a Google ID from a previous WISER session, so had pretty much got the page set up with some basic stuff. I had, however, almost forgotten about it!

Customise your iGoogle page so that it contains at least 5 gadgets

On my iGoogle page, I added a calender, calculator, and the weather forecast. Not the most interesting of extras! I had previously, however, put on an RSS feed, with some blogs which sprung to mind. In total I have about 6 gadgets on the page, but I don’t think I will be adding any more.

The SSL actually has it’s own iGoogle page, so I use this really frequently. It has been in place for quite a while, so has a lot of the most useful things I would need already on there. For example, term dates, or a big long list of useful bookmarks that we will often need to answer the varied and tricky queries readers bring to the issue desk!
