I love Google’s Scholar Alerts!


Updated 10/28/19

If you’re not using Google Alerts yet, sign up to receive them for general use. You don’t need a Gmail account to do this. You can set one up on any topic. For example, I have one set up for my name and my online moniker.

For scholarly work, go to Google Scholar Alerts and select the Alerts envelop icon. It’s located in the upper left-hand corner of the drop-down menu. See Richard Byrne’s video tutorial on Google Scholar Alerts and Google Scholar Libraries. You can also establish a profile for your work on Google Scholar.

I’m using alerts to keep up-to-date with the latest research on educational gaming, elearning, and my products. The periodic updates keep me actively reviewing articles.

Here’s an example from my inbox:

Scholar Alert: [ “educational gaming” “traditional learning” ]

An Approach to Utilize Ubiquitous Devices for a Game-Based Learning Environment

T Tachino, K Yokota, A Madden – The Journal of Information and Systems in …, 2013
 These data were summarized for the practical design of educational gaming applications played
on smartphones and mobile phones. Smartphone and mobile phone approaches were important
methods in assessing individual performance and during the debriefing phase. 
This Google Scholar Alert is brought to you by Google.
