How current are your Internet skills? For efficiency, take advantage of these often-overlooked Internet tools:
Collaborate on documents using the Google-owned online word processor Writely.com. You create documents, and then invite collaborators to review and revise it with you in real time. When you’re done, instead of e-mailing the document as an attachment to 35 people, you simply “publish” it, so anyone with web access can view it.
Do faster online searches by customizing the toolbar search engine on the browser Firefox. The browser comes with a built-in Google search in the upper right-hand corner. But users also can add toolbar search engines for Amazon.com and Weather.com, among others.
Say you want to quickly find out the title of Stephen Covey’s latest book. You could do a Google search. But will it immediately produce the name of his latest book? No. Instead, if you drop down to the Amazon search engine, it will take you straight to his books.
Create video messages using YouTube. You may have noticed that presidential candidates have been doing just that. The easy-to-use tool has business applications for you and your manager, as well: Send a personal “thank you” to a far-flung group, set up informal learning sessions or make company announcements.
Here’s how to use YouTube (www.youtube.com): You’ll need a camcorder, a digital camera or even a cell phone that can record video. Copy the movie to your computer, then either upload it or edit it with software such as Windows Movie Maker to add titles and special effects. Now you can post the video to a web site or send it out as a link.
