  • “it’s the home page of every piece of online work I do. Everything I need sits there, including most of the rest of this list…”  Mags Amond
  • “My iGoogle page is the one I return to minute by minute throughout the day. It has links to my calendar, my most used bookmarks, weather and news and a Twitter app. It really does function like a virtual desk, and is available wherever I am working.” Helen Whitehead
  • “My personal google homepage where I have immediate access to my RSS feeds, news headlines, weather forecasts, etc. A one stop shop to access all kind of information.”  Guy Boulet
  • “This is still my number one tool.  My RSS feeds are set up using iGoogle – my Google home page. However, you can use any number of readers. I love the fact I can set up RSS feeds for news and issues I want to track”  Steve Rayson”I use iGoogle to manage my personal learning and work environment. On my home page, I have Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Bookmarks, Google Reader, and Google Docs and use each daily.”  Janet Clarey
