Inspired by Robert Kaplinsky’s Problem-Based Learning Search Engine, I decided I wanted to create my own based on my favorite websites to check before starting every unit.

The process is very simple but at the end of it, you come out with a search engine that will only search websites that you decide are worth including.

Here is a step by step guide to creating your own.

1) Head to Google’s Custom Search Engine Site

4) Give your search engine a name and hit ‘create’

And that’s it. From that point, you can bookmark the search engine, or embed the code into your website. Enjoy! Do share your URL in the comments.
