Google Earth Workshop - from CIT

Run by Andrea Novicki through the Center for Instructional Technology.

Interesting, inspiring workshop. Went over how to create placemarks, what polygon, paths, overlays are. Basically did a tour of the general functionality of Google Earth. Interesting features I didn't know about:
can do 3D polygons
can have timelines, show changes over time
can implement tours
has a "ruler" to measure distances along paths, etc

Most important new thing: can share maps through the google earth community. Lots of neat maps already available, you can share your work easily.
