Could have been great for the students! as Sputtr is a very clever multi-search engine.
We gave it a go, when some students came asking for assistance with their current research topics.
Afterwards we also looked at the options it has for creating a customized search page by including some of my favourite search tools, as well as allowing us to choose from a variety of Web 2.0 zones – anything from Youtube to twitter to DeviantARt to WorldCat and heaps more.
Sputtr incorporates websearch, images, video, audio/music, maps, blogs, blogsearch, news, bookmarks, social networks, people search, reference, country information, and more.
Ah, so it’s great isn’t it?
Yes, it is.
But I CAN’T recommend it for use by my students because it has the naughty button which leads to a paid ‘love’ service. What a damned shame. After a good start I spluttered to a halt.
