Zoom-zoom. More power for those looking for learning objects or instructional resources. MERLOT’s Federated Search allows you to enter keywords (say “cell mitosis”) and with one click conduct a search of MERLOT, Australia’s )EdNA Online, and the Science Math resources of SMETE. Actually the EdNA folks had demo-ed this first at the MERLOT 2003 conference last August.
That is a lot of search power for you. Now if only the search results were savable as a URL… or federated RSS… or free wine…
