Description

Chrome Extensions

During this Chrome Extensions video training course, you will review some popular and useful Extensions. Browser extensions can add a great deal of functionality to a browser. Because Google allows anyone to easily post an Extension in the Google store, there are a great number and variety of extensions. Google does review and scan extensions for viruses and malware before they're listed in the Google store.

Although this course is designed for anyone, there are a few extensions covered that might goes into some advanced concepts such as SEO numbers. Users are encouraged to skip through the lectures to find sections & extensions that appeal to them.

It's highly recommended that you already have Chrome installed prior to the course, most devices already have it and it's very easy to install, just Google “Install Chrome".

This is a supplemental course to Chrome and I kept it short. Udemy requires courses to be at least 30 minutes long.

There is a brief video introduction and several video sections, they are followed by a recap, a short quiz and a documents section at the end which has a copy of the slides and a few additional materials.

This course includes a quiz and certificate of completion.

This course was made in high-definition and is best viewed with the DH setting on and with the videos enlarged. Feedback is a critical part of an online course. Once you have completed the course, providing comments helps improve the course and benefits everyone, so let me know what you think.

Business Analyst, Trainer, Author

I have over 20 years’ experience in the Technology area. My degree is in business so I have a solid business foundation first. I have spent my life on the practical application of technology. Even when managing servers across a large data center and Amazon’s cloud services, it was training people and making practical sense of all that technology that most inspired me.

I have lived in the bay area for over 30 years and raised 3 wonderful children. When they were young, all my spare time was full of parks, beaches, camping and more. I still love all those places, but I have a passion for both learning and teaching that is my driving focus today.

I have worked for many large corporations, PG&E, Pacific Bell (when it was still called that), Nabisco and Kaiser and used a significant variety of software and applications over the years.

I have experience in Microsoft Office including Visio, Project, OneNote, Microsoft Management Studio, Oracle SQL developer, Amazon’s Web Services, Database Management, and a truly large list of corporate software including analytics’ packages. I also have experience in Google docs and drive, Microsoft’s Online Office including new features such as Sway, Apples iCloud, OpenOffice and a significant list of online applications. I own and use many pieces of technology including (Win7&8, desktops, laptops, Chromebook, Mac, Android Galaxy phone, iPhone, Kindle, several Android tablets, several Roku devices, Apple TV, Chromecast, several other casting devices, more Galaxy accessories that I can count, Hue lights, and other assorted technology). I also have installed over 1,200 apps on my Galaxy phone, tab S tablet, and iPhone.

I have published two books (working on a third), one on search and one on creating a whole new language for numbers and analytics called Hacking Numbers. They can both be found on Amazon. I have a YouTube channel devoted exclusively to finding quality content on Science, Technology and News (bestscitechnews Channel) I am active on Google forums and have answered countless posts, still under 10,000, but getting close.

I have always struggled to understand why everything has to be so complicated. I enjoy taking complex things and trying to make them simple for everyone (myself included). I love to teach and show others a path through all this technology
