Oolone and More Search Engines for Students

Oolone is a new visual search engine that displays results as web previews instead of text, offering a nice option for efficient and intuitive searching.  An oolone search displays the top four results in a grid that allows uses to scroll over the images to  get a closer look at the site before actually selecting it.  Designed to be a quicker and more efficient way to search, it speaks to the idea that that sometimes an image is the best answer to a question.

With the added bonus of plugins available  for Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer, it’s easier than ever to offer students search options to fit their unique learning styles. I’ve added it to my Bag of Search Engines for Students found below. If you like this Bag, feel free to click on the embed button at the bottom and quickly embed it in a place for student use.
