Research in Google Docs

Today Google announced a new Tool in Google Docs called "Research." It allows you to either select the Tool menu or right click on the word, and have a side bar pop up with information about the word. It currently is working outside of our Apps for Education domain when you create a new document, and should hopefully be rolling into our Apps for Edu in the next couple of weeks. The video below gives an overview.

UPDATE: After posting this, Kyle Pace shared with me the document he put together on the new features. In it, he points out that you can also change the search filter to include only images that have been Creative Commons licensed, along with other detailed features. Thanks for the "heads up," Kyle!
